Scattered in a small area in pine woods after rain. Habit, habitat, and appearance are consistent with E. serrulatum as described by the Audubon Society’s field guide to North American mushrooms. Final photo shows gills are pale greyish-blue on some immature ones, also consistent. The white foot is interesting, and again consistent.

I think you need more info here, before you can try to put a name on them. Can’t really tell much from the photos, and need gill details and spore color to even guess the Leptonia…
