Specimen available

Normally I make every effort possible to ID my finds. But I was not expecting the turnout I stumbled across today.

I was hoping you were around today. If there is anything I can do short of shipping these to you to help with a more confident ID, please let me know. Migraine hit me hard midway through the hunt. In depth research just not an option for me right now.

Possibly, this is Amanita muscaria var. persicina.
