Does the first one exude any latex (liquid) when the gills are cut? It looks a bit like Lactarius subpurpureus?

The second looks like an Agaricus sp.

Wait for an expert though, as always...

Huh? 1) is not a Lactarius for sure. I'd say that's a blewit (Clitocybe (Lepista) nuda).
2) Agaricus. Does it smell like ink/disinfectant? Then it is poisonous. But it doesn't look like that. If it smells pleasant, like anise/almonds then this is also a good edible.

no no liquid when they're cut unless u squeeze them, they both smell like regular store bought mushrooms if you ask me, yet the first one has more of an odd scent, more of a wet old wood smell but not so much an ink smell

The closest smell i could put my finger on the scent for the first one is some kind of spice actually, but as for the secondone one it just smells like a regular mushroom store baught, just with a more nature smell to it.

Regarding the ink smell I was referring to the second mushroom.

I know little about Lactarius sp., it just looked like the pictures of Lactarius subpurpureus that are in the Audubon guide.

I don't know much about Blewitts either, but I have never seen one look like that. I guess all the ones I have seen in person still had the incurved margin.

That is why I told him to wait for the experts....:wink:

Does the first one smell like spices, or "fragrant", like frozen orange juice?

yes the first one has an odd spice smell, the second one i compared to actual ink smell and it smells nothing alike, just smells like a normal mushroom, but yes the first one is a odd spice smell not too strong of a smell it still has that store baught mushroom smell mixed in there.
