looks like a member of the most deadly genus, amanita.
i say this based on the sheen on the cuticle and the arrangement of the gills.

never can say for sure.
in this case we need a lot more info, especially the BASE of the mushroom.

describe it.
pretty good pic.

shaniatwain has it. You've found an Amanita.

To help us identify it we need to see the volva, a bit of tissue that often resembles a cup around teh base of the stem. Not all Amanitas have one, but we need to know about it in detail for identification. If possible, please very carefully dig one up so that the volva doesn't come apart and end up as fragmented bits in the soil. Then show us that.

I note from your last photograph that they have a partial veil, also. That's a shet of tissue that covers the gills before the cap opens all the way.

The best specimen for us to see on this would be as young a one as you can find, so we can see the young volva and partial veil.

Other things you can get to help us from your current specimens include the odor (if any), and any bruising reactions. To check bruising, cut one in half vertically and scrape the inside with your knife to bruise it. Most bruising is within a few minutes, but it can take up to an hour.

Do you have Tincture of Iodine? It's used in first aid and can be purchased at the grocery store. If you can get a spore print on glass then test it with iodine it would also be useful. The spore print should be white, and we need to know what color it is after you put iodine on it.

In the meantime, the existence of a partial veil puts thos mushrooms among the poisonous species.

Keep us posted.

Happy mushrooming!

yup, at first it looked like a death cap without ZOOMING in, but the patches on the cap definately dont match that.

the beautiful Amanitas. definately need to get details on the volva at the bottom of the stem etc.

really is a pretty specimen.

You need to dig around the base and very carefully get the whole thing with dirt, then very carefully remove the dirt. If it doesn't happen, there are mushrooms like that. The last Amanitas I found had really fragile volvas - I only got about 5 out of 25 I dug up.

Happy mushrooming!
