I notice that the cap on the broken stem in the first picture has a white skirt at the very top of the stem.

On the other hand, the mushroom in the photo with the drawing of examples of caps has no skirt on the top of the stem and has a quite interesting rooting bulb on the bottom of the stem.

Is it possible that you have more than one species in this set of pictures?
