These were pretty common in Guadalajara, I found many yesterday. Maybe undescribed though, that forest has several species of mushrooms that are found nowhere else. I will mail this specimen to you.

I’d agree that it’s probably in the pantherinoid group…

It looks as though the partial veil was originally funnel-shaped (infundibuliform…what a great word). That MIGHT suggest a similarity to A. multisquamosa, but it seems a bit too robust for that species. It is possibly an undescribed taxon. I have collected a cream-colored “pantherina-like” taxon in Mexico and Costa Rica that I felt was undescribed at the time of collection.
