No idea on these but the best way for me to learn the shrooms is to drag them home and attempt to ID.

Turns out that these appear to be American Ceasar or Jacksonian Mushrooms which are members of the Aminita family but this one is supposed to be edible.
Mistake an inedible bolete for an edible one, worst you'll get is gastric distress. Maybe slightly more severe reactions from eating chanterelle lookalikes (jack o' lantern).

But if you mistake an inedible aminita for an edible one, and it could easily be game time. Yeah, death. So choose your battleground wisely. If you choose to eat aminita, I surely hope you are 110% positive of what you're eating. I personally don't eat aminita. Plenty of other choice edibles out there with no deadly lookalikes.
