IMO this is not a good name for these mushrooms, ive seen alot of tenera like conocybe in my area and these are not one of them. On close inspection there are wispy cortina like remnants on the stems but its very hard to see. IMO they are something close to Pholiotina dasypus, regardless I wont argue the name until I have the evidence to do so.
