Dangerous Mushrooms

During our recent trip to Parnassos Mt and Giona Mt we saw quite a few species of impressive mushrooms. One of them was apparently a very dangerous one Amanita muscaria (Fly agaric mushroom), know for its psychoactive effects. The genus Amanita is responsible for 95% of world wide fatalities from mushroom poisoning!
I hope to manage to identify the rest of these species, as soon as I get my mushroom guide book. In the meantime, any help from fellow mushroom experts is highly acceptable!
