I am with Alan and CC on this one, but like CC said it would have been nice to see these in person. Mushrooms vary so much, sometimes you find a mushroom and it does not match what the field guide says it should look like but it is what the field guide says it is :0

This may very likely be Conocybe, and I wish I had seen this in hand… In this image the gills are not very rusty coloured, more of a drab brown, which leads me to consider Psathyrella.
