Amanita citrina var.alba?

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Hi, Could anyone confirm if this is Amanita citrina var.alba as opposed to Amanita citrina from the photographs and description given below. Sorry to say the fungus was a bit passed its best. Thanks in advance.

1. Cap : White, 60mm across with light brown veil remnants.
2. Stipe : White, 100mm x 12mm, broader at the base, large volva sack present measuring 35mm across.
3. Gills : White , crowded, free.
4. Found under Fagus but pines near by.
5. Smell : Very strong raw potato

Hi Mike I think you can justify calling it var alba.
