Those are gyms, you can even see blue staining in the first pic.

Notajack.  The distinct fibrillose zone is covered with rusty-brown/orange spores.  I'd call that Gymnopilus spectabilis.  Should taste bitter, even if water-logged.

I say old Gymnopilus Spectabilis.  Some bluing on the far right mushroom's stem?  I've taken many pics where it seems there's bluing but I saw none when looking at the shrooms.  Don't know if that's the case here.  My pics aren't the best.

I'd call the bluing confirmation bias.  I see the "stain" too, but it really isn't "blue."  I've picked these for a few years now and only found one blue-staining G. spectabilis. Most BLG's that are active have some greenish tones from time to time.  Blue? Hardly ever.

take a look at the pictures shroomydan has in the active mushroom section of the site, some of the gyms he found are incredibly blue, some are green.

I have seen gyms blue just like psilocybes before, ill see if I can find the pics.

I had my doubts; that's why I expressed the tendency of photos to make it easier to "imagine" bluing.  I have seen those pics too though.

Here are Dan's photos:

http://www.shroomery.org/9469/Gymnopilus-spectabilis

As you can see, bluing is hardly ever found.  Can it happen?  Oh, beyond a doubt.  I picked a cluster in '92 that weighed 5 pounds.  It was growing in a yard off deeply buried roots.  The stump had been ground up and the lawn was flat.  When I plucked the cluster and took it home, the entire place where it was snapped off bruised a DEEP, indigo blue.  That was the only time I have seen that in 20 years.

I think the "BLG's" (*edit bruising blue) in Dan's page are actually luteus.  A species that is much more susceptible to blue staining than BLG's.

Now compare them to the thousands of BLG photos found across the web.  That's exactly why I said hardly and exactly why Dan posted those photos.  They are unique.
