the ochre-gilled one is B. titubans, but rather Conocybe apala

Thanks for the replies! I’m new and never knew there were sooo many types of mushrooms. I have at least four just in my front yard :)

Do you have a picture of the gills? At least do you know the color of the gills/spores and the way the gills attach to the stem?
