the Amanita in the first pic is A. muscaria var flavivolvata, as distinguished by the yellow bruiding of the veil tissue.

the striate, pleated cap, verry dark gills and fragile, hollow stipes give the coprinus away. they look to be Coprinus micaceus. there are other similar Coprinus species, but micaceus is IME the more common. the most helpful key trait is the presence of small white granules on the cap ranging in size from grains of salt to powder [these often wash off with rain].

the third one is probably a Limacella. is the stipe distinctly sticky/slimy?
what was the habitat, if you can be a bit more specific?

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
