I often find P. papilionaceus with an annular zone. These look just like the ones I find. I don’t know what’s going on with the mushroom on the left, but the other two don’t appear to have an annulus.

I think the coprophilous habitat and the campanulate cap with an appendiculate margin point to P. papilionaceus. The colours are also a better match for P. pap than for P. semiovatus.
