Probably were A. polypyramis

They were growing in the same area as a lot of other A.polypyramis. The only real difference was their very wet almost melting appearance. They looked more like marshmallow fluff than mushrooms.

Any reason why these couldn’t be A. polypyramis again?

In the last picture, there are rings of minute warts around the top of the bulb. This is one of the characteristics of polypyramis. So I think that that name would be at least a good guess.
