The first is from the darker tan cap, the ther two are from two lighter caps respectively. The first has a different morphology in that the spores are irregular in shape.

When I put cream colored spores, free gills, white gills, no veil it lists: Gymnopus, Rhodocollybia and Russula species.
The closest of those appears to be Gymnopus confluens, except that these were not growing in clusters.

Only three genera are listed in the key here as ever having a cream spore print, free gills, and no veil: Collybia, Crinipellis, and Marasmius. Crinipellis mushrooms are brown and hairy.

Free or attached gills?
