Recognized by sight: The pure white gills, the ring and the apparent lack of a volva point to Lepiotaceae. Having pictures of the cap surface and a close up of the bottom of the stem would be really help.

I would like to obtain more photos for making a more clear view of the supposed Amanita sp Pers. I got those ones during the rainy season in João Pessoa, Northeastern Brazil, which happens between February or March to July.
I will be try then to get more photos in the Atlantic forest by 2010.
Thanks for the new approach of the photos.
