These amanitas have caps exactly the color of honeydew melon, they bend right around obstructions to come up, they start out buried (mainly in pine needles) but for the cap, up to 4 or 5" stems, the eggshell wipes off easily, all the flesh is pretty soft, the stem has a crispy snow peas fresh veggie texture and does not taste the same as the cap, which has a kind of warm taste to it, not like any common food i can think of, maybe a bit like celery soup.
I'm wondering if they might be the famed phalloides. I would not describe them as yellow at all, so i think not citrina, but I'm not sure what other amanitas might be green. These are all coming up in small groups during the cold (40F) nights in middle GA, oak/pine.
The last 2 pics are a day apart, i think they look groovy.
