Yeah, suggestion is just for the ones that look like Agrocybe :)

are you saying that the brown pleated mushroom is an agrocybe? There are small beige agrocybes in the background, but the species that I am concerned about are the small brown ones. I should have made that clear when I posted this obs. so there would be no confusion as to my proposal.

area is decomposed wood chips that were moved about.

Dark area on first photo appears to be nothing more than dark soil.

Okay, so it’s the dark ones…

we’re considering here. I’ll take down the “mixed collection” proposal.

Looks like the MO photo-viewing feature is malfunctioning again. I wanted to have another look at the gills. I didn’t notice any mottling earlier, and so I didn’t give much consideration to the possibility of Panaeolus. But I was hoping to have another look.

The first photo seems to show a dark area in the wood chips. So I’m now wondering a bit if there may be evidence of a deliquesced mushroom. The brown ones don’t look like a coprinoid species to me, so I’ll pass on proposing any such thing.

I think maybe Deconica could be considered. But these are usually found in the presence of dung.
