The first two photos are C. umbonata. Photos 3-6 are a Pluteus, 7 looks like something different from either of the others. I would remove and repost 3-6, and just delete 7 since it is not identifiable from that one photo.

My thought was that the differences were old vs. young species, however, it is possible that they were different species altogether. I have a couple other pics of what I thought was the young (fresher) examples, if you think they are different I can destroy them and create a new observation.

It looks like a Pluteus in the third picture, the others look a bit different..?
