It's a bit late for A. phalloides, and that species almost always has a prominent annulus. I feel like A. velosa usually has this kind of metallic amber sheen too, but deathcaps are so variable I'd hesitate to make the call on color alone.

Okay, I think you might be right because relatively close (20 yards) to this mushroom I found some others that look more like the A. velosa youre reffering to.

This observation the mushroom was more exposed to sunlight and seemed a bit more "dry" than this observation:

which were sheltered under trees growing in duff.

Anyway the heavily striation age, and solid one color saying velosa. Amanita phalloid, if you examine it carefully, it have a mix of colors in it, kinda greenish, like the one that come out of your nose, instead of just a solid yellow that velosa have.

But hey what is this about a period of time that these two suppose to appear that I don't know much of?
