It is in the gemmata group, and doesn’t yet have a good name.

Thanks — I was keying on the translucent creaminess. Another one for my life list.

It’s Amanita breckonii not gemmata.

I agree with Darvin. The more orange than yellow cap color is also consistant with breckonii.

The breaking of the universal veil is NOT forming “gems”. It looks like Amanita breckonii.
