hopefully wiser,
After doing some observing This looks very much like Clitocybe maxima which I have found many times which also darkens turning a hygrophanous brown pink (not purple) with age, both of these specimens appear to be aged and water logged,

Looks like two different species in the picture. Doesn’t the white one have white gills too?

very dry weather conditions? I cannot explain the pale cap on the left otherwise … or do you have varieties not known to Europe?

Also surprisingly palid
