Caution: Do NOT use iSpot to identify fungi to eat!
Some fungi are very poisonous so a mistaken ID could have serious consequences.
No interactions present.
Or how about A. haemorrhoidarius given the very red reaction? Did you smell them? The ring on the stem can be an important feature and is easy to rub off but not sure if this would have helped here.
I think the ring on the stem had dried up, or most of it fallen off. I did smell the flesh, but I think that smell is so subjective and unless I have two different species infront of me, I find it difficult to compare smells by memory - unless they're very distictive. Isn't A.haemorrhoidarius synonymus with A.silvaticus? I did think given it's immediate bright red discolouration it probably is Blushing Wood Mushroom, (A.silvaticus syn. A.haemorrhoidarius), it's just the cracked cap was really throwing me.
Very many mushrooms can have a cracked cap if the weather is suitable, even ones that are normally smooth. But some of the Agaricus are much more susceptible to this than others and indeed they normally have a cracked cap. Not very helpful I'm afraid.
