it’s a good tactic. I said grass, but that is maybe lawn, I don’t know what do you call… just wild herbs, in the middle of a industrial park. There was a tree there but 5/6 mts. I found there 2 sp of entolomas.

They sure look like that obs. Dave, and as they are spring mushrooms… I think that it might be vernum sp. This winter has been very mild, and has been raining a lot.

My understanding is that a variety of springtime entolomas…

are possible, and they are difficult to separate by species. I tend to apply the name vernum to ones that occur very early in the season. Here in Pennsylvania USA, mid April is very early for fleshy gilled fungi of any type. The ones seen in the linked obs were collected in a grassy area, a path on a hill with some trees.
They do look similar to the ones in this obs (131067).

Usually I find E. vernum

in deciduous forests not in grassland.
But I am no expert in them. They are horrible to determine.
I do not think it is vernum but I have no better other proposal too.
