By the way, it is edible and here , in Spain, it is considered to be one of the best mushrooms to eat

Thanks a lot Arlanda!!! I should had taken a picture of the gills, now I realise how important they are for identification. Thanks anyway for the ID. I´ll try to find this type of mushroom again this summer and get that picture. Greetings!!!

Probably Amanita cesarea. It can be confused with Amanita muscaria since the last one can lose the typical white scales on the cap after heavy rain. It is a pity you do not show the gills because they would definitely confirm A. caesarea if they were golden yellow
