No specimen available

I found this while walking at the edge of a field, they were growing in the dirt scattered around in-between the trees and brush. I am not sure it the trees were black or while Birch or maple, they are all around here. The mushroom does not have much of a smell. The veins arrear to be white all the way through. I don’t know about spores don’t really know how to do that.

I am new at this so why do some of the pictures show concave caps and others show concave? All the mushrooms I observed (12 in all) had concave caps. They were spread out over about 2 meters square. They were about stem width 13 cm, stem height 145cm cap diameter 95 cm. Not good at metric so hope this is correct. I put it in a plastic bag overnight and there is a white substance on the plastic. Is the bulb on the end of the stem normal for this kind of mushroom? I also does not have a ring on the stem.
