Found under oak. I'm pretty certain it's A. Velosa but wanted a TI confirmation

Looks a reasonable guess given the habitat, time of year and general appearance. Someone more knowledgeable can confirm.

Yes, Amanita velosa.

Thanks for the quick response! I'm always a bit worried with these guys still but I feel pretty good about differentiating them from A. Ocreata and A. Phalloides.  What identifying characteristics make you feel sure about these?  I look for the cap coloring, cottony zone on the stipe beneath the cap, thick volval patch and thick sac-like volva. I know that the above mentioned deadly Amanitas are either white or greenish and that they seldom have volval patches and usually have a much more delicate sac like volvas and anuluses. Also they appear to me to be different in stature if that makes any sense but I don't really know how to describe it exctept that A. Phalloides look more sickly and A. Ocreata seem more eerily sterile.

Also important is the striate margin along the caps outer edge - this is a feature you don't see on the poisonous ones.  A non-bulbous base, and of course A. velosa does not have an annulus (veil around the stem), where both A. ocreata and A. phalloides do.
