seen in the second photo don’t show any obvious marginal striations. 6th photo down shows a more expanded cap that has long marginal striations. Amanita mushrooms representing species of section Amanita often fail to show marginal striations before the cap is expanded. On the other hand, I wonder if there may be two different species here. At any rate to discuss ID of almost any type of fungi (but especially so with amanitas) it is advisable to carefully harvest a few fruit bodies and photograph/describe various aspects.
