Spore print

Now looks, on the basis of spore print, gill attachment and appearance, and habitat, like Naematoloma, Psathyrella, or Psilocybe.

Probably your typical small lawn Panaeolus, Psathyrella, Coprinus, Conocybe, or similarly. Maybe two species there; I notice darker and more conical caps and lighter and more rounded ones, though maybe that’s just different growth stages.

The spore print color will help to narrow things down. A closeup of one mushroom’s cap underside would also potentially prove useful, by making the gill attachment and shape clear.
