My first thought............

My first thought when I saw this observation was Amanita pantherina (Panther cap) rather than A.rubescens (The Blusher). Because the cap is quite brown and the broken flesh does not seem to have discoloured pink/red. Although saying that the veil remnants on the cap do seem slightly coloured unlike the pure white of A.pantherina. It's hard to tell from these two photos alone, as the cap is half covered by brambles and fallen leaves.

Chris The veil remnants of A

The veil remnants of A pantherina are pure white so it is unlikely to be this. Where the stem has been damaged/eaten is showing signs of red.
