These were found in a backyard after a rainfall. They smell like ordinary market mushrooms, they grow grouped together and have a rubbery texture with stems that are quite frail.
Much appreciate any help with ID.

That’s what I was hoping for. Either of those species will suffice in realizing the prophecy.

The photos aren’t conclusive

about the cap surface being or not coated with a fine layer of reflective mica-like cells. If this is the case most probably it would be C. micaceus, otherwise maybe C. disseminatus.
