This mushroom is only about an inch and a half tall. My blurry hand it filling up the background of the first photo. I’m pretty sure its the same kind of mushroom as the one in this observation:


how big is this amanita anyway?

my vote would be for brunnescens, if it’s not a tiny amanita.

porphyria is quite similar, but has definite gray colors on both partial and universal veil.
if collected and dried, the purplish-brown color of porphyria (at least true for our west coast forms) becomes a silvery gray.

Which should have a potato odor and gray tints on the partial veil.
