Cap warts and partial veil

This mushroom is distinct from other collections of Amanita rhopalopus in several ways.

The cap is covered with a fine sticky powder rather than distinct warts.

The annulus is cortinate.

The bulb is narrow, not producing a dumbell shape.

And the odor is mild. This mushroom has the Lepidella stink, but it is mild and rather sweet. I remember thinking this is probably the smell people are describing when they say a Lepidella smells like ham.

I suspect this mushroom is not the same species as the Leps I found last year that now bear the name Amanita rhopalopus
