Comments: 

This is likely the easiest member of Amanita sect. Lepidella to identify. It has a powdery white cap and stem, but there are two distinctive features that stand out. 1.) Cafe-au-lait colored gills. 2.) A stem base that bruises blue-green. This characters make it relatively easy to identify.
