Does not look like an Amanita to me.

Again, very interesting….

Was the mushroom growing from wood or from the soil? I agree that it has some of the characteristics (free gills, e.g.) sometimes associated with amanitas. (Note that not all amanitas have completely free gills.). Once again, it would be very helpful to see the base of the stem and any remains of a volva that might have been on the stem base. Careful excavation is one of the important factors in collecting amanitas. It is unfortunate to lose a sac-like volva or a more or less long rooting structure at the bottom of a bulb.

Very best,
