Pictures of Fungi in the Redwood Forest

We are about two weeks into the rainy season in Northern California. The mushrooms are just beginning to present themselves. Here are three different types that I saw on today's hike. This may be an ongoing thread for what it's worth the next couple of months. This is one of my favorite times of the year. Any help identifying different species is most welcome...

Pretty sure the first one is referred to as an Earthstar fungi / mushroom.

Also my favorite season.

On #3 ... do an image search on Amanita and look for some pics of lighter color ones that have flattened on top. Not the red ones called Fly Agaric, but other species.

Thanks Mario, this is great! I don't think I've seen an earthstar before today. After doing an image search, I think the second fungi may be a Marasmius, and the Amanita might be a Amanita Frostiana?

Mario, these have all been taken in Montgomery Woods. I'm down in Mendo, probably a little ways south of where you are. Montgomery Woods is sort of my "home base" when I need a redwood fix.

I am pretty sure this last photo is not of a fungi.
