Funky Mushrooms

Been working in my garden the last couple of days and noticed how suddenly mushrooms keep popping up. While they spring up mostly under my conifer tree it's way more then usual and some years I don't see any at all. Not sure what kind of species the one above is. Tried to find a match on Wikipedia but no luck so far.

Although not really that clear in the picture, the one here (I think) is the common mushroom. The local wildlife already took some bites out of it. I had wood stacked there for making a new garden fence, covered it over with plastic, and when I removed the last panels of wood yesterday this thing popped up. Kinda makes sense since it was in the dark. Not that I'm anxious to find out by cooking and eating it.
