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.

Hi folks, got a few fungi i need some help to identify. My friend call me this morning saying he had some mushrooms around his house. He had some Macrolepiota procera and some Coprinus comatus that were easy to ID, but these iv no idea . They was all found on grassy land around his house next to deciduous woodland.

1st one, i'm not sure where he found this, he had picked it before i arrived.

Hi,

The first two images are of Weeping Widow - Lacrymaria lacrymabunda.

All the others look very much like Clustered Domecap - Lyophyllum decastes.

Regards,
Mike.
