Recognized by sight: gill color and attachment with a veil would make me think Agrocybe. Possible something like erebia?

Loooks like an Agrocybe to me, and the wood-chip habitat fits. The A. erebia I’ve seen here in Pennsylvania, USA have gills that are more broadly attached. But these may be younger specimens and the profile of the gill attachment may be somewhat buried underneath the gills. Bessette/Bessette/Fischer lists the gill attachment of A. praecox as “notched or attached with slight decurrent lines.” The ones here look like they may have notched/attached gills.
