Hello Olivia,

Mushroom identification can be challenging, even more so from a picture!  In addition to colour, size and shape, One often needs to consider such factors as spore colour, (sometime even the shape of the spores, flesh colour (including colour changes when one cuts open the mushroom) and gill attachment in order to come up with the species.

The remnants of the universal veil on the cap (often called warts), the presence of a cup just coming out of the ground and what appears to be a ring about a third of the way up the stem suggests one of the Amanita species. But which one?  I think Amanita rubescens is a possibility, but this should NOT be considered definitive.

Hope this helps.  Perhaps others will provide additional information or corrections to the above.

Is there anyone who knows what this kind of mushroom is too?
