Any ideas on what this mushroom could be? As i was moving a thick mat of pine needles i found two of these growing up.

Anyone think this could be amanita muscaria persicina? My location would not be far from its common range, although it would be on the western boundary of it from what i understand. I am searching for red or peach colored fungi that live with pine trees and not finding much. The cap of this mushroom has no warts like some of the persicina photos i have found, but some look very similar without any white on the top surface.

The sickener perhaps?

These are pretty common in the Georgia pine woods.

I think you are right john i was just heading to this thread to put Russula emetica? Based on many of the photos it is a dead ringer. Thanks.

One clue is the edge of the gills being so pronounced in my picture.
