Lovely. It appears to be a Amanita Muscaria var formosa. Poisonous!!! Causes profuse sweating, deep sleep ,and delirium.

Only poisonous in high doses and very rarely fatal, but every mushroom guidebook calls it poisonous. It's thought that these are the kind of mushrooms the greeks ate to have visions. And to think our entire civilization is based on their ideas. It's just another kind of "magic mushroom" but it's not illegal.
