Probably not G. autumnalis

These are probably not G. marginata (=G. autumnalis). The veil is wrong here, it is too membranous, and too far down the stipe. The last one shows veil fragments on the margin, and that you won’t find in G. autumnalis, its veil is too fibrous and weak for that. Also it doesn’t quite look like the margin is striate here, these look more to be a Pholiotina. I wouldn’t mind looking at these either…
