Mushrooms can be quite poisonous and can provide you with a slow agonizing death, so don't go eating what you haven't identified.

a couple were larger with almost white caps, but same dark gills.

You can't ID a dried shroom unless you're an expert, and even then it can be tough... mushrooms aren't always your friend, especially "found" shrooms.
I've seen thousands of mushshrooms on cowshit and never seen an actual shroom. Cow poo is great food for many mushrooms, not just the ones we specialize in.

What color are the spores?
they look black to me
Cubie spores are a dark puprle, if those are black they MIGHT be pans.
