The ones with striate margins are Amanitas, and they look to be in the Amanita vaginata group. While that group of species are edible, I would strongly recommend *not* eating them. Amanitas kill more people than all other mushrooms put together, so an ID of some to be eaten must be correct. An ID based on a photo on the Internets is not reliable enough to potentially risk your life on.

The brown one looks to be a Lactarius. Try breaking the stem. Is it fibrous, or does it break like a piece of chalk?

Happy mushrooming!

Dont forget to get close ups of the base of the stipe, this is very important when identifying mushrooms in the genus Amanita. Nice pics though, awesome specimens.

Nice line.  Mind if I borrow it?
