Vaginatae – even has rusty staining.
Has a visual affinity to our Amanita protecta, but that would be a long way from home…

maybe sect. Vaginatae???

The cap striations at the margin and the lack of ring make me think of an Amanita sect. Vaginatae. I may be totally wrong though, amyloid vs. non-amyloid spores will put us on the right track.

There are some European Amanitas in sect. Vaginatae with grey, very friable universal veil on the cap, I’m not familiar yet with representatives of this group in North America.

got Meltzers?

I thought about A. farinosa, and A. nehuta .. nothing fits

I agree with amanita as a genus…

but am stumped as to a species.
wrong volva for farinosa, not quite onusta, either, but a bit similar to both.
small size? it’s quite interesting…
really no specimen?

something like A. farinosa
