that the first two photos show a Leucoagaricus that has undergone a developmental abnormality? Maybe the cap got waterlogged and or frozen at one point? I have seen L. naucinus specimens with darkened or cracked caps. The white gills and ring look very mich like what I’d expect to see for L. naucinus.

of Armillaria or Armillariella. Pretty young. I’d expect to find many more in that area since they rarely fruit as single specimens.

The last photo could be many things, but without a photo of the gills, impossible to tell. Might be Lepiota or Amanita, Leucoagarius, or other species. I may have collected the same material yesterday at my neighbor’s yard in Portland. May (or may not) be the same thing. Am waiting for a spore print before posting.

The first two photos are of a deformed “Honey Mushroom” (Armillaria sp.), while the last photo is something completely unrelated; probably a young Agaricus or Leucoagaricus, but it’s impossible to say with such an ambiguous photo.

You should remove the last photo, it is not the same as the first one and it is impossible to get a positive ID on it.
