Characteristics of the gills (color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc) gills all white, some attached if mature, big circle c. Measurements of cap and stem. vary.. largest was 5inches CAP, stem about 4inches long 2inches circumfrence d. Characteristics of the stem (color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc) stem is thick and soild e. Characteristics of the cap (color, texture, concical/spherical, convex/concave, etc) white, smooth, look at pics f. Spore print color (very important!) havent made one yet.. but will g. Color that the mushroom briuses ??? dont know h. Scent of mushroom sweet, yet musty... soft smell, cold smell
ok here are the next ones....
they were growin out of hay that i just bought a few months back, hay was spread for the dog pen...
same habitat... east tenn.. big rain past 3-4 days it was hot before then.. 90-95ish its been about 75-80 the past 2 dyas gills are light brown, not attatched.. non of them in thepatch were attaached CAP about size of a quarter to half dollar, no bigger stem is brown, hollow, fragile smooth cap isbrown all over except for DEEP brown nipple on the top, almost shinny brown, some were slimey in a way curved up brusing mush now taking print now
ill add, wheni was picking hte little brownies.. they stained my fingers from picking them up from the lower gill.. my fingers had redishbrown stain on them after i pickd

ill post spore print report and bruse later..
A habitat .. east tenn.. grown off of edge of decompost pile.. big rain fro the last 3 days
These are just guesses until all the data's in, but:
The first looks like a Lepiota. We need to know about bruising in the stem and cap. Cut the mushroom in half vertically and watch the color changes for a couple minutes. Watch the cap and stem independently of each other. We also still need to verify the spore print. Many of the large Lepiotas are excellent edibles, but there are also deadly poisonous Lepiotas, so get an ID before you eat.
The second one is tougher, but guessing from your comment about staining your fingers "redishbrown", I'll guess they are Cortinarius. If so, there may be some spiderweb-like material on the stem where a ring might be on many mushrooms (please check). There are other mushrooms with that color spore print as well. None of them are active, and some of them are deadly poison.
Also, and this is important for identification, were there any trees nearby (within 10 or 20 feet)?
-------------------- Happy mushrooming!
