kueda's ID: springtime amanita (Amanita velosa)

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.
