Nice work, Smoobie.  :thumbup:

Do the stems snap like chalk if you try to break them?

#1 -little tougher, as if trying to break a dandelion stalk,

#2 -clean break

#3 -crumbles into four different pieces when you break it

Well, the one that broke like chalk is a Russula.  :laugh:

#1, because of the striate margin and free gills looks like an Amanita. Without the specimen in hand and some microscope work it will probably not be possible to ID it to species.

#2 also suggests an Amanita to me. Hongos, I see why it looks like a Russula, but the first photo seems to show a somewhat shaggy stalk, something that would astonish me with a Russula. Also, the 3rd photo (with the stem end in it) looks to me like the end of an Amanita stem where it has been pulled out of the volva.

#3 I really can't guess very well. It looks to be pretty environmentally distorted, so it's tough to get a good feel for what it might be. The striate margin and the statement that the gills are adnexed suggests Russula.

Happy mushrooming!

Agree with TM, 2x amanita and a russula. No specific species come to mind though.

Welcome to the Shroomery Smoobie, we're all happy to help you out, especially with ID requests as complete as this one!

specimen two was the only one to give me a spore print, it was very light brown.  I enjoyed learning about mushrooms, thanks for helping me ID and for all your help!

I really appreciate it!
