Amanita strobiliformis identification

About mushroom

Amanita strobiliformis (Vitt.) Quel. Cafrangos gal?ca. Sometimes other authors use the name Amanita solitaria for this mushroom. Cap 15-25cm white, with large plate-like grey remnants of the volva. Stem large 15x5cm, white with a ring. Gills white. Flesh white. Spores 12x8??. Found on chalk or limestone beech woods. Said to be edible, but I advise against because of the possibility of confusion with poisonous white species. Europe.
