Everyone is finding secret stashes around em. Need an ID to be positive, may be something I dont know or didn't catch. Yes, yes, throw up and be confused, I have had nothing but positive experiences.
The only reason the gills or stem would look anything other than white is because its dirty/slightly dried. It had snow white spores and gills.

It's an Amanita all right, but I can't confirm what species.

While not all specimens on Amanita muscaria have multiple rings of volval tissue near the top of the basal bulb, most do. Without those rings of tissue it's difficult to be sure of what you have.

There are several Amanitas with cap colors like your specimens. Most of them have not been tested to identify the toxins in them. There are deadly Amanitas that have toxins other than amatoxins (for example Amanita smithii).

Please don't eat these. Amanita is too dangerous a genus to experiment in.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
