The translucence of the stipe was apparent in hand.
When I’ve seen this species it was easy to understand why it has the common name of ‘Candlestick Amanita’ since the stipe has a slight translucence like a candle. In these shots I don’t see that translucence. However, based on the stuff stuck to the cap it looks like it had been dry for while.
