about these representing a species of Psathyrella. The color arrangement on the caps reminds me of P. delineata. But there’s just not enough information available here. And the photo appears to be a bit out of focus, which makes it difficult to judge the texture of the cap surfaces. So it’s difficult to rule out other possibilities.

Best to harvest at least one mushroom, find an outdoor spot where there’s good ambient light but no glaring direct sunlight (open area with some shade available), and photograph the mushroom from different angles so that features may be viewed… cap underside, base of stipe, or anything that seems interesting or unusual.
