Wow, I wouldn't have guessed those were the same ones. Looks something like Leucoagaricus americanus.

Wow now they're getting interesting. Gonna need some underneath shots. Maybe a little mirror might help.

Very cool! I am definitely interested in seeing them mature as well. It could be a Gymnopilus species, something like G. luteofolius or thiersii.

Yes I can go back, unfortunately it is raining today. So I have little chance of taking any pictures.

Any chance you can go back and check these? They're fascinating. I'd love to know what they're going to be when they grow up.

I wonder what they will become. No gills or pores showing?
