How to cook the mushrooms I bought at Grenelle market today?

In Paris and loving it. One week in the Marais and now in an apt off Grenelle near Cambronne metro. With my faltering French and his minimal English the young man at the mushroom stall sold me a variety of mushrooms when I asked for some to saute together. We all love mushrooms so my daughters and husband are looking forward to cooking our goodies tonight. I think we got chanterelles and girolles and something else?! One is very dark brown, almost black and almost like a delicate flower...what might it be? The others are both yellow to orange, one being brown at the top (or a yellowish brown) with a long, rubbery stem, the other more squat and a very bright yellow/orange almost the color of saffron. Can I just saute in butter and some thyme? Are we in for a treat or a surprise? And thanks to you all we have had wonderful meals at Le Reminet, Josephine Chez Dumonet and look forward to Les Papilles Tuesday. Do I need reservation at Machon d'Henri or Bistrot D 'Henri? Thank you!
