I'm pretty sure that the white mushrooms at the top are (poisonous) amanitas or death caps. No idea on anything else.

I also see an earthstar, puffball (Lycoperdon or Calvatia sp.), Panaeolus sp, and maybe a Clitocybe?

To help identify in the future, it might help to take notes of location and substrate, as well as doing a spore print... But nice finds!

Did your Amanitas have volvas (bulbs at the base of the stem)? I don't think those are what commonly called "death caps", though they could definitely be in the Amanita genus.

Way too much in one picture. Multiple photos (above/below/side) for each variety/species please.

The three mushrooms at the bottom right (4-5 oclock on your plate) maybe genus Laccaria , need to see the top of the cap to know for sure.

The previous post was correct: earthstar (9 oclock), puffball (12 oclock), Panaeolus sp (7 oclock)
Your Amanitas are most likely a variation of Gemmata (Danger Will Robinson! Danger!)
