These mushrooms are growing in the woods in Northern Virginia, and I'd love to know what they are! I suspect the red one is poisonous...

Could the red one be Amanita parcivolvata?

The red one looks like Amanita Muscaria or fly mushroom. Known to some as poisonous. Siberean aboriginals used them in Shamanistic rituals.
The other may be an Amanita also.
To check, dig up the suspect. Be sure to give the bottom a wide birth.
The entire fruiting body will be growing from a cup like sac underground. This characteristic will put the specimen in the Amanita family. The Amanita family contains two deadly poisonous species. Be very careful on id.

The red one looks like Amanita parcivolvata to me, but I can be mistaken as it resembles closely with Amanita Muscaria.
