Amanita poss Blusher 1
Description:

It could be either A. rubescens or A. excelsa var spissa. I couldn't pull it up because it was on a nature reserve, so the first photo shows where I have pulled the moss aside to get a better view of the stipe. There is a slight hint of reddishness about it. It was growing near birches.
