Another possibility

This doesn’t have the ‘classic’ look of anything I know well, but going with the ‘persistent gold staining’ and the semi-unique surface texture of the cap, I would consider A. albolutescens. It’s primarily a coastal species, but who knows for sure? A. moronii (known range is western-montane) in my experience usually has a shorter/broader stature and a smoother cap. Just some informed speculation here… and new locales often produce new species.

The aspect is, to me, most reminiscent of things like A. cf. chionodermus (of the Rockies, to Alaska and Europe) and allied species, but the gold staining doesn’t fit and the veil seems different from those.
