I made the same observation

I wasn’t sure if it was a ring or something else, but with a closer look at the second picture, I could see veil remnants on the cap margins. If all these are the same species, at least it’s not Clitocybe.

Need to see the underside…

My first impression was Agaricus and image 131421 has a knocked over specimen that appears to be showing a bit of a ring. If these really do have a ring, then they aren’t in Clitocybe. A photo of the underside would complete resolve that question Clitocybe species generally have light color gills and Agaricus species have dark gills at maturity. Of course it’s also possible this is a mixed collection.
