This could be one of the Amanita lavendula group.

For amanitas, it is very, very useful to dig up the mushroom and photogram the base of the in addition to the cap. If there is a bulb at the stem base, that often helps with identification from pictures. If there is no bulb then there will be sack-like volva around the stem base, and that will be revealing as well.

Very best,

Rod Tulloss
