i found it in a area in the woods which is also part of a cow pasture. it rained yesturday and i was actually searching for cubes =) The cap 3"x3", definatly has an outter skin which is rich orange and underneth gills are not attached to stem. Stem is 3" yellowish turning whiter at bottem then turning greyish. Stem is full not hollow. i picked another mushroom of suspected type three days ago and it was a victim to maggots. =( thanks guys

It might be some kind of Amanita, but not A. muscaria. It doesn't seem to have a volva or any rings at the base.

If not amanita, perhaps it's some type of Russla. The way the cap has weathered makes me think russla.

The stem is fibrous, so I think it's an Amanita. There are a lot of kinds of Amanita that don't have a partial veil. Also, I frequently find Amanita muscaria specimens where the ring has fallen or washed off.

A young, fresh specimen would help for identification. If you get one, try to note bruising reactions and any odor. To bruise it, cut it in half vertically and scrape the inside with your knife edge hard enough to bruise the tissue.

Happy mushrooming!
