I uploaded more pictures. Also, could you see if you are able to identify the other unknown Agaricales in my collection. I have 2 others. Thank you!

I’ll be happy to look at them. Don’t see any yet.

Would you be able to further identify the genus/species of the fungi?
Also, I have uploaded more pictures.

Really hard to tell for smaller mushrooms.

The attachment of the gills to the stipe (stem) makes a big difference in what this might be. I can’t see what kind of attachment is present.

Here’s another interesting and fun thing that helps identify mushrooms: a spore print. If you take just the cap from a mushroom, and place it flat on a sheet of white paper, then cover the mushroom with a glass or cup to protect it, in a few hours it will leave a pattern of spores (if young enough). The spore color tells us a lot about what kind of mushroom it could be.
