Michigan Mushroom ID Question

Hi,

I live in southeastern Michigan, and have recently found two types of mushrooms in my lawn. I was wondering whether anyone could identify the species of each, as I haven't had any luck finding them on any online mushroom ID sites.

Here is the smaller of the two, which I found in the middle of the lawn:

And here is the larger of the two, which I found in a cluster next to a large bush at the edge of a small, semi-wooded area:

These have started to degrade since I photographed them a couple of weeks ago, but I did measure them and found the largest mushrooms in the cluster to be about 7-8 inches in diameter.

If anyone could identify these for me, I'd be very appreciative!

Thanks,
Katie

I don't know, but they are nice pictures, and very interesting looking fungi, especially the bottom one, which looks like some variety of shelf fungus (but those usually grow on trees).
