these western NA former psilocybes. (I’ve seen coprophila a few times.) Honestly, though, I don’t see what is clearly an annulus on the smaller one. Closeup on upper (reddish) small one shows what may be fungal material on the upper stalk. But I can’t really tell it isn’t just something in the background. Lower small one (whitish) has a drop of water on the stalk. From what I can gather from Arora, maybe it’s the white particles along the cap margin that suggest Deconica for 32986?

The gill shot is really washed out, giving the impression that it is light spored… But I think it is brown spored. Probably Deconica, but maybe Galerina.

Oh, there is also an annulus, you can see it pretty clearly on the younger mushroom.
