The nrITS sequence is damaged; however, we have a rather good nrLSU sequence.

The latter [in the areas of overlap with the relevant sequences (>93.9% in all cases)] is 100% match with a number of sequences from what I take to be Amanita rubescens var. alba.

The very limited staining on the cap and stem of your material is consistent with the slow-staining of rubescens var. alba.

Very best,
