me at A. gemina. But the pictures don’t quite match. But I don’t have a microscope available, either. I have added more pics to help, though now I wonder if I don’t have two different species. One has a slightly thinner greyish stem and a “clean” veil rip, the other is slightly thicker and seems cobwebby, which puts it as A.gallica/A.calvescens.

Better ID possible?

I would like to know more about these, since they are so prolific in one area — hundreds of them there. Every 2 feet or so there was another cluster of 5-7 mushrooms. Soft and watery edges were more distinctly “ringed” than the pictures show. They did not go far into the woods, and were mostly covering the moss and grass near it.
