Interesting widely spaced gills with odd flat cap, possibly amanita, but need help. Found in soil near small fallen conifers and hardwoods. Other nearby amanita had more lemon color, like Amanita lavendula. A third photo was added for this comparison.

I messed up again, failing to get the sample. I’ll try to remember photos are fun but not enough. Mark
If you send this to me, mark it with the MO #, please.
Thanks for your guidance and comments. The interesting and attractive gills will be the challenge, as you suggested.
Thanks for your comments. I’m adding a photo of one the nearby amanitas, maybe lavendula type, just for comparison. All of this type, were less developed , but the bulb and the ring appear similar in nature as you suggested.
…a bit like a lavendula-type species with its small, low-placed ring, the characteristic bulb and the staining on the stipe, but man those gills are out of this world. :-)
