I don't have a pic of these mushrooms, but by the description it may be easy to ID for the experienced mushroom hunters.

The caps and stems of the mushrooms are tan with gray flecks on caps that look like paint chips. They had a single ring around them. They stained red at the point of picking and inside the gills (which are white) in some spots. I didn't take a spore print, not extremely interested in them and am pretty certain they are not active at all. They looked cool so I picked them. They were about 5 inches tall, caps were the same as the "traditional" mushroom. Any ideas?

Maybe Amanita rubescens?

some species of Lepiota (L. rachodes comes to mind) are mostly white, have scalyish caps and will bruise red/orange as well.

I concur. Could you tell us a bit more about the size of your find? Lepiota Rachodes is a pretty common mushroom and it literally stands out in the landscape...I guess the odds are you stumbled upon one of these.

Caps were smooth, stem and cap were both tan, and the distinguishing feature were the gray colorations that looked like paint chips scattered on the caps. They were about 5 inches tall, probably a little taller and the caps I dare say were about 3-4 inches wide. I found another one of these today 1/8 of a mile from the two previous ones I found before.

That rules out Lepiota.

A bit too small for Lepiota Rachodes, but there are smaller Lepiotas of course.
But I'd go for something in the Amanita genus. A picture would say more than a thousand words, yaknow :wink:
