but if you want good IDs or want to share the beauty of these mushrooms, better photos with more perspectives (side views, bases, underneath the cap) would help a lot!

Well, that sure looks like a shot from the NJ pine barrens.

Is it possible for you to take pictures giving a side view for the mushroom?

I can see that the cap has grooves along the margin. This occurs in Amanita. The cap color and the little umbo (bump) in the center of the cap do not eliminate Amanita as a possibility.

From this information, I would guess that the species falls in Amanita subgenus Amanita. It could be in any of the three sections in that subgenus.



Very best,
