My mom noticed this mushroom because of its size.  THESE ARE POISONOUS!  The smaller one was not fully spread, the larger one, in the background, was spread.  The gills were closely spaced, but did not fork.  There was a ring around the leg, and it had raised scales on its head.  It was 12 centimeters across and 12 centimeters high.
