    The top mushroom is indeed a bolete, probably a 'Two-colored Bolete,' although it is usually found in oak woods. Its edibility is "choice." Outside possibilities are: 'Shaggy-stalked Bolete,' which has a smaller cap than this one seems to have; and 'Red Gyroporus,' also found under oaks (and other trees) and also edible.

    The bottom one is an "Elegant Stinkhorn,' which grows in wood debris, leaf litter and rich soil. Not edible.
