gills? I think so

It’s really hard to see, but I think they’re visible in the droopy one in the bottom left. I assumed there weren’t in the field, but noticed that one in the photo and revised my opinion. Cudonia and Leotia both have ball-like heads, not the umbrella-shaped caps of typical gilled mushrooms with a free, dropping rim, right? Are either scurfy like this, either? I know there are tiny scurfy golden Hygrocybe that grow in troops like this, though. (I’ve seen some in BC.)

would assume so if you’re guessing Hygrocybe. Cudonia/Leotia or something of the sort if not.
