They are not active, you aint gonna trip oiff them if thats what you meant by "right ones". Active mushrooms bruise blue, badly. Theres no "It kinda bruised" its either blue or not.

We're not sure but the gills do look like they've got a greenish tint to them. There's not nearly enough information here to even make an ID down to a genus. All I can tell you is they're not active and might be poisonous.

I was going to say they looked liked C. molybdites also, but the pics aren't the best and the description is poor. Only thing he mentioned that would rule out C. molybdites is that he said his mushrooms stained red, that would point towards some type of Lepiotia.

Those are Chloropyllum molybdites.
-I doubt the stem "stained redish".. the stems are more brown than redish, but they do not bruise or stain; the stems color changes as it matures (from a white when young and finally a darker brown as they mature).
-I doubt the gills turned "greyish blue".. the gills go from white to a very light pale olive-green, and usually only in more mature specimens then the gills finally come out to be seen as a more noticeable green, yeah and, sometimes i guess it can almost look like the color is greenish/blue (the gills).

Those are Morgans green-gilled lepiota. Chlorophyllum molybdites.
-They are poisonous, and they are very common in cow pastures also in lawns and even in woodchips.

Keep shroomin,

I vote Chlorophyllum molybdites, too. But it looks pretty beat up.

The stem should typically bruise brownish, as GG mentioned. The cap flesh will sometimes bruise slowy reddish.

In any event, it's a very nasty poison species. Definitely do not eat it.

Happy mushrooming!

first thing i thought was Chlorophyllum molybdites, look at the gills, greenish gills on a lepiota are all i need to know to say, dont eat it.
