Amanita murrilliana…

is a species housed in section Caesareae of genus Amanita. Mushrooms in this section have membranous volva (structure at base of stipe formed by the universal veil), and striations (grooves) along the margin of the cap. These traits are each missing form this observation.

Difficult to propose anything here. The “Gestalt” of this mushroom (overall impression) is that of an Amanita from section Validae, maybe something in he amerirubescens group. But I think genus Leucoagaricus is another possibility here.
