The last photo shows a younger fruiting body with an inrolled margin. Blewits are purple when young, especially the gills. C. brunneocephala is common with valley oak.

Could you elaborate why you think they are C. brunneocephala? Mushroom demystified claims that they won’t have any purple which this collection doesn’t have, but this collection ( http://mushroomobserver.org/ ) which was found two days earlier across the path did. Couldn’t they be fading blewits? Or are those other ones C. brunneocephala as well?
