The Smithsonian Handbook of Mushrooms has a good image of Pluteus umbrosus

Page 172 has a very good image of Pluteus umborsus. Your first image looks very close to the cap image in this handbook. It notes velvety dark brown cap and stem surfaces and dark gill edges making it easy to identfy. Of course other comments noting its occurance and temperate zones. Perhaps you may want to check that reference out regarding this mushroom. One other note was that it(Pluteus umbrosus) has an acid odor. The first image is striking! Kate
