Amanita??

Does anyone know what this mushroom might be?

Cap:

Classic red with white dots

Was dry (I also didn't touch it much, because I thought it may be poisonous)

About the size of my very small palm

Stem:

The stem was white

There was a skirt/ring coming down from the cap (I think that is what it is called)

Gills:

Were white

Really close together

I did not see any stains below and did not try printing it

Location:

Found it in Vancouver BC

It was growing in grass

It's an Amanita for sure. Amanita muscaria subsp. flavivolvata.

These red-capped muscaria of western NA are really striking. In Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado, I once ran across a patch of beautiful fresh ones with cap diameters up to about 6 inches. They look like shiny Christmas tree ornaments.
