what these are. I doubt they are Lichenomphalia

different stages of life. They all seem L. umbellifera but the lines on cap are not so visible as I expected.

It was overall much more robust than the other omphalinoids I found that day, about twice the size, with a cap that was more flat and having shorter gills. This had a darker coloration much closer to this(perhaps the same?) with the observation you referenced being lighter in comparison. Both others were growing in the same bed of moss on the same rock/mud surface, this was about 100’ away growing in moss on asphalt.

I did happen to collect these…so here is a photo with this on the left and these on the right: fresh & dried

It’s ok..

Can you describe the differences between this and the other observation (Lichenomphalia)?

My only other photo of this was pretty blurry, but I just added it. Not sure if it provides any useful info or not.
