It is difficult to identify this species with the bulb in the ground.

One of the distinctive characters is the presence of a long narrow bulb. Another character is the presence of conical warts made up of a dark gray powdery volva. These are not present in the photographs. I think the speces may belong in section Lepidella; however, there is not evidence for calling this A. onusta.

It’s important to photograph the bulbs or stem bases in Amanita.

Very best,
