These were id’ed by Dr. Brian Perry.

Id’ed by the brown-red color, and that the gill margins are brick red. I thought these were M. californiensis, but it turns out there are two species that have brick red marginate gills. This are associated with conifirs, and the others are usually with hardwood. Also after looking these over, these have a thiner, softer cap and M. californiensis is more robust.
