Amanita Porphyria?

I saw this specimen on acid soil near Oak and Birch, between 5 and 7 cms across and my best guess was Amanita Porphria and wondered if this indeed might be the case. I have lightened the photo slightly from the original if by chance it aids ID.

Cortinarius Armillatus?

I found this specimen among Birch and oak on acid soil and my best bet on ID was a Cortinarius Armillatus , I would however appreciate an expert to confirm (or not) whether this is indeed maybe the Identity.
