The overall gestalt and the shape of short gills suggest the could be conspecific.
The shape of lower stipe is quite interesting. It gives an impression of an indistinct bulb rather than of a totally elongating stipe. I cannot make out the structure of the stipital volva in either 318014 or 318196, but there is no sack. These characters would be the decisive evidence for choosing between sect. Amanita and sect. Vaginatae.
