The funnel shaped volva on the stem (edge flaring upward) suggests Amanita multisquamosa (although I’ve never seen it quite so yellow in the center). On the other hand the things that I have thought might be russuloides did not have broad white margins and were not so slender and long-stemmed.

Interesting group.
