Look more like Galerina

They look more like Galerina than Bolbitius, they are more evenly colored, more tan than yellow, deeply striate, stipe has that patterned surface of white hyphae. It would be good to see more details, but these look more like Galerina, although there are some light yellow-tan Tubaria. Bolbitius would be more lemon-yellow, not so striate, the stipe without the texture and more pure white.

These look mostly like a Galerina in section Tubariopsis, which pretty much all grow with moss. And there is moss there in the photo, so that adds to the suspicion…

I’m pretty certain these are the moss Galerina

Might be G. clavata or close relative, or even Tubaria… Another one I wouldn’t mind getting under the scope…
