I suspect that it is more of the case that “the white one didn’t have pink gills…yet.”

I also vote volvariella.

the White one did not have pink gills at all

I know that the other one is Panaeolus species but they were growing together on goat dung under aspen so it would seem to be a Volvariella species but the gills are pure white, may be its an albino?

The Panaeolus is likely to be P. papilionaceus.

Agreed. One if definitely Panaeolus and the other is definitely Volvariella. The way that the gills dip down below the cap margin is the most obvious indicator.

mixed collection/Volvariella

The first picture looks like a mixed collection (with Panaeolus?), and the main collection looks more like Volvariella. Did the gills have a pink hue?
