is simple, Matt. It’s a mushroom in a bed of cast-off pine needles. Because you haven’t provided more information, we’ll have to give a best guess.

I would say you may have a Boletales, based on what may be shallow pores on the inside tip of the cap. That is the only think I can see, anyway. Boletales have individual pores, where they produce their spores.

Other beneficial information: a photo of the underside of the cap. That’s where the spores are most likely to drop. Note the color of the spores (under the mushroom, or with a spore print on white or black paper). Show us on MO the rest of the stipe (stem). And especially, show us the base of the stipe, just in case you’ve found an Amanita in disquise.
