I know they are not active. But are they edible?

If they are red they are probably stropheria. I think not edible.

At first glance I'd guess those are Russulas or Lactarius. Try breaking a stem with your fingers. If my guess is correct, they will break like chalk, with no fibers as most mushrooms have.

Most Russulas and Lactarius are poisonous or not worth eating. They're definitely not from the edible Lactarius species.

Happy mushrooming!

I tried to break a steam and it is fragile and there is a white milk with the mild taste so probably it is Lactarius. Thanks Borealis and especially ToxicMan. Most Lactariuses are good for pickling in Russia where I am from though.
