I missed the part about the patial veil. The sack is a better match for section Caesareae than Vaginatae I think.

with a partial veil AND a membranous volva…

it can’t be a member of the vaginatae (no partial veil) or Amanita elongata, from section Validae, which has a friable, yellow universal veil (i.e., no sac at the stipe base) and a yellow partial veil, too.
