The conical mushroom in the last photo and that in one of the topmost photos look virtually identical. They were also all growing terrestrially.

No sign of cups at stem bases so we can at least rule out Volvariella. :)

you have both Entoloma and Pluteus… How far apart were they growing?

In one photo they are attached, in another specimen they are free. Interesting diversity in this character from a collection that clearly represents a single colony.
