Yes, I agree these are similar to obs 247957, obs 255442 and obs 248580, and also to obs 249090, which is a different species than the former three. Looking at the bottom two pix, your mushroom is actually closer to 249090. However, the pore surface of your collection is yellow and pale even in young specimens, and the surface bluing is much more pronounced. Hence, there is also a possibility of this being a different taxon.

Edibility… good :)

In any case, I ate them and they were pretty delicious!
