This is meant to be a picture of the large mushrooms in the center of the picture with the salamander on top.
This picture may look like a different mushroom, but that is because only the gills are visible (with the exception of one cap showing in the middle left, which shows that it is the same as the caps with the salamander on them).

is likely a Hypholoma. Problem is I don’t see any Hypholomas in the first photo.

I can’t tell which of the species photographed is supposed to be this observation.

You have photographed several fungi together, including Pholiota, Hericium, Grifola, and others. The photo showing gills does not appear to match any of the fungi in your first photo.
