Recognized by sight: grossly similar to and often confused with bernardii. Noah’s second mushroom from the left appears to show yellow staining (a bitorquis not bernardii feature).
The odor would confirm the ID one way or the other; no iodine (or olfactory facsimile), no bernardii.

iodine odor?

the cap is reminescent of bernardii but I agree with Darv that the stipe is unusually long. If it had the iodine odor, tho, we’ll just have to chalk up the weird stipe to morphological variability.

Did these slowly redden on the cut marks? They should also have a distinctly salty seaside odor.
