Welcome to the shroomery. Good job on your first requests. A couple of things that would be helpful would be to know what part of the country you are in, and to have some pictures of the gills of the mushrooms. For bruising, you just squeeze or cut the mushroom and see if there is a color change over the course of an hour or so. And how did you do your spore prints? I'm a little skeptical of the colors you report.

My guesses for the genus of each of your mushrooms is:
1. Armillaria
2. Mycena
3. Marasmius

Nothing that is active or particularly good to eat. I'd also wait and see what some others have to say for a more positive ID. I'm only about 60% sure on any of those guesses.

did they come with the blanket? If so they are likely to be the creepy blanket mushroom, or mushroomis blanketis.

:laugh:

Xmush - I had a different thought about those. First off, I think Honey mushroom (Armillaria is a fair guess, but really impossible to tell at this stage of growth. I doubt he was able to actually get a spore print, probably just guessing or the flesh stained the paper while printing. Maxmick, If I am wrong on my assumptions, please correct me.

The second specimen, Max reported the gills as grey and spore print as dark brown/black. If that is accurate, I'm gonna guess it is a very small Hypholoma aurantiaca. It just doesn't look like a Mycena to me. Max, where do you live/were these mushrooms found??

Third, Why do you guess Marasmius?? Marasmius species are often characterized as usually having a convex cap, rather than conic. But that aside, The mushroom looks very much like a Conocybe to me.

The first one was the only one I felt really good about.  I just dismissed his spore printing ability, but I shouldn't have because Hypholoma aurantiaca is a good ID for the second one.  And Marasmius was an ill-informed guess on number 3  :shrug:
Sorry, my ID skills hit a nadir at this time of the year.

Naw, everyone suggests random things once in a while. Only yours and a handful of other users opinions on this board will I seriously consider. I probably could have worded that last sentence better, but it is early morning.
