Identification of fungi

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.

They look to me like one of the Clitocybe species, for the example the highly poisonous Clitocybe rivulosa.
