Great pictures.  The first fungal specimen looks like a bitter bolete. The second looks like it could be a cracked bolete and the third is a suspect. Could bea Ceasar's cap,  but it's difficult to know for sure without seeing the gills or the base. Did it have a bulb?  The only safe mushroom is the one that you've positively identified and eaten;) lol

 

I advise looking at several books, taking spore prints and making absolute certain of your identification, before eating any.  Anytime you plan to eat a new mushroom,  it's a good idea to preserve portions of the cap, stem and gills (or pores) in the freezer.  You might want to leave a note on your table so the detective can find the samples,  that might make the autopsy easier you to complete 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻😆😆😆

I will ge my buddy to take a few more picks to get a better idea. I do a lot of mushrooms hunting but always stay with what I know but am always looking to expand my knowledge about mushrooms so all my friends always ask me to identify what they have seen or found. Personally I have giant puffballs on my property and morels. I also hunt chicken of the woods and hen of the woods. But I am always looking for others too eat but never without positive I.d.  I always take photos to help positively I’d them too. Here a few.
