Possibility of two species here

I am wondering if there are actually two genera/species here.

The first photo of the cap with the deep indention. Ones like this were low over the water and I was not able to get to one of them. The ones further up the bank did not show indentations, the ones where I show the gills. There were some by the water that also showed poor or no indentations. I thought at the time that there was just a lot of variation in them.

I’m not sure if I can get back to sort this out, besides we are having hard freezes now.

Also for the identification of Laccaria, the ones I gathered did had short stems and fleshy/fibrous stems.
The stems were not tough or wiry. So the stems do not quite match Laccaria but it seems there is a lot of variation in the genus.
