Recognized by sight: The species concept of Agaricus (Panaeolus) cinctulus is based on a drawing made by Bolton in 1791. No type collection exists. Since it is not possible to know whether Bolton’s species was Panaeolus subbalteatus, P. olivaceus or P. fimicola, I consider Panaeolus cinctulus to be a nomen dubium.
Based on microscopic features: The gill faces need to be checked for sulphidia; the presence of these would indicate that it is probably Panaeolus fimicola.

I see tooth like veil remnants around the margin of the cap of the front specimen in the first picture. And the stipes are reminiscent of papilionaceus (I’ve seen lots of them). And the specimen in the second picture, the cap texture, the banded margin, and stipe texture looks like cinctulus. Just guesses based on macroscopic features.

how can you tell what it is with so few details presented???

The mushrooms in the first picture look more like Panaeolus papilionaceus, while the mushroom in the second picture looks like cinctulus. Possibly two different species?
