This group was growing about 2 feet from those in 151224. It also has the feature of a very large stalk with white fleshy interior. The caps were about 4-5 inches across with stalks about the same length.

Grassy field in cemetery. Hardwood edge about 30 feet away and a large mature oak about 30 feet away in the opposite direction.

Josh, I almost proposed that name, but hesitated based on the clustered growth and really stout stature (thick stipe). Given that they were growing near observation 151224 I think they are more likely Macrocybe (some of which also have black stipe scabers).
