If it is the Eastern Destroying Angel, the new name for most of them in Vermont is now bisporigera. The rarely collected “North” Eastern Destroying Angel, Amanita magnivelaris, has not been lumped under bisporigera. Details on that species here: http://pluto.njcc.com/~ret/amanita/species/magnivel.html

nice call, Noah! I saw that pink color in the gills, but dismissed it as an artifact…

when I zoom I can see what you are calling warts, too. I’ve never seen a “rubescens alba”…but maybe now I have.
