ID on mushrooms

I bought these mushrooms at a local store that carries fresh oysters, shiitakis, portabellos, plus the usual with occasionally some different kinds in the mix. They called these "frying mushrooms." Obviously, you get thousands of answers if you Google "frying mushroom" and we haven't been able to find a picture that matches these when Googling "edible mushroom pictures." So, does anybody know what they are? They are about 8-9 inches long.

Those are King mushrooms. They are pretty good grilled or fried.

Is that the whole mushroom, or has the cap been removed?
