Found these mushrooms in wood chips with a well-developed mycelial mat with white fibers. Stem is very hollow with holes present at the base. Spore print was a richer brown as opposed to a pale or rusty brown. younger specimens had more conic caps and the mature specimens had flat caps. what is it?

but looks like Agrocybe. Psilocybe should have a purple-brown or darker spore print.
