I'm new to hunting and was just hoping someone could ID these for me. Found in South Carolina, growing in some dead leaves and other things beneath a tree. Not sure what kind of tree it was, but there were no pine tree's around if that helps.
The mushroom has attached gills and they are primarily a light brown color. The cap is a lighter beige or light brown color exept on the outside edges which are more of a rust color. The biggest cap was about 8cm in width. The biggest stem was about 13cm in length.

I can give more information or take more pictures if necessary.
Some of the colors in these pictures arent exactly accurate as to my eyesight.

First, get a spore print. If you don't know how, read the sticky threads at the top of the forum.

Next, feel the surface of the cap. Is it slimy, sticky, or does it have a sort of soapy feel?

Happy mushrooming!

I did a spore print, it turned out white. The cap was slightly slimy.

I think you've got Lyophyllum decastes. They're not an easy mushroom for beginners to accurately identify, so I don't recommend eating them, even though they're edible. Also, they cause a lot of allergic reactions compared to most mushrooms.

Happy mushrooming!
