Friday Fungus: Don't touch that!

Mixed oak and pine woodland and there it sits - a little nibbled but there. If it's what I suspect it is, then it's in the most dangerous of places - Death Cap likes oak and the mushroom below likes pine:

Before it's fully opened this grisette will look quite similar to a death cap - slightly browner with lines down the cap but easy confused.

As my wife said - don't touch that!
