Observation 278296: Amanita sect. Amanita

Notes:
My first amanita of the 2017 season! In my experience, this is very early for amanitas in my area, but this critter is apparently hosted by the pines that do support a number of fungi (mostly boletes) in mid- to late spring in the Pine Barrens.
A single small and immature fruiting body growing at the entrance to the Pakim Pond parking lot next to pitched pines and a red oak. I didn’t disturb the specimen. The lighting conditions were not great, so the pix are of so-so quality.
The cap margin appears to be striate. The bulb is ornamented with a fragile collar of the UV. There is probably a ring, but I couldn’t orient the camera for a shot from below. This is not praecox; probably something close to “sp-SO1”?
