Hi tripsterhunter, welcome to the Shroomery.

Your mushrooms are not active. We will need a spore print to Positively ID them, but I think they are of the genus Hygrophorus.

Given the strongly serrate gill edges, smooth cap, and well developed central stem I'd guess that those are actually fruiting form buried wood and are from the genus Lentinellus. Although there is some resemblance to Lentinellis omphalodes, the season is wrong, and they are probably a related species that I don't have a reference to. If that's all correct, they should have a white to buff colored spore print.

A good resource you should consider is contacting Dr Tom Volk who just happens to live fairly near to you in La Crosse, WI. He's a friendly guy, a great mycologist, and he puts out a Fungus of the Month web page every month. You might want to read a few of his recent pages (the most recent is a good example) before you write to him (an email address for him is on the page I linked to above).

Happy mushrooming!
