Very fibrous.

Given what you've said and the photos, the white mushroom is probably an Entoloma. Unfortunately, good keys to Entoloma are not easily available (I don't have a good one), so an accurate ID to species is unlikely. As a group, they are difficult to identify accurately, and many of them are very poisonous.

For the second mushroom, we need to see the underside to get started. Since they are rotting, it might not be worth the effort. Mushrooms that are rotting are often pretty much impossible to ID.

Happy mushrooming!

Yes, I threw out the Entoloma. I figured pink spores meant very toxic.
