Emily’s amanita fits Jenkin’s description of canescens very well…

esp. that distinctive cap coloration: brown-gray on top and white at the edge. Her photo also shows the pink orange fibrils at the stem base described by Jenkins; your photo is waaaaay better than the one in the Jenkin’s amanita book, though. Nice to see. AS to its currently accepted name or synonyms…I’ll leave that one to Rod.
