Looks like there may be powder in the center of the cap…

Did you see the stem base? This could be in sect. Vaginatae (especially if I’m wrong about a powdery volva on the center of the cap. However, this could also be Amanita farinosa. There would be no sack in the latter case, and there would be a little bulb (probably with gray powdery volva left on its “shoulder.”
