Recognized by sight: The species concept of Agaricus (Panaeolus) cinctulus is based on a drawing made by Bolton in 1791. No type collection exists. Since it is not possible to know whether Bolton’s species was Panaeolus subbalteatus, P. olivaceus or P. fimicola, I consider Panaeolus cinctulus to be a nomen dubium.
Based on microscopic features: The gill faces need to be checked for sulphidia; the presence of these would indicate that it is probably Panaeolus fimicola.

They were found in a lawn that I am sure was irrigated regularly. The lawn is also close enough to the coastline that the fog rolls in pretty thick every night and stays till the sun burns it off by mid-morning.

Nice find! Irrigated area or rain in southern California?
