Small capped mushrooms in a mixed woodland. ID please.

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Trawled through my books again today, but to no avail. As a beginner I am finding initial identification very difficult at this stage. Some help on the ID of the attached please. Fungi shown in #1 and #2 were on same log as #3 and #4. Are the fungi the same but just more mature or are they different? And what are they? Many thanks.

They are Armillaria. The first two probably A gallica, the last two not so sure.
