I am in Seattle for the first time and I found these mushrooms in the arboretum. They were growing near the base of a large tree. There may be 2 different types here not sure. The first picture with many mushrooms: The caps are conical in shape about 1 inch diamter. The caps are very light tan in color with a darker color near the edges. The caps do not have points they are rounded. The gills are are dark brown, and close together. The stem is smooth and white about 1/16 inch in diameter. The second picuture could be a different type or an older version of the first picture. The cap is a darker tan and darker yet at the bottom. The cap is not as conical in shape, it looks like it's more like the shape of the hats you see in those old Chinese movies. The cap is more like 1.5-2 inches in diameter. The gills look the same as the first. Stems are also the same as the first. Also, the 3rd picture is of a leaf that was near the tree that I used to help pick the mushrooms up with. I did not verify it actually came from the tree that the mushrooms were growing near. Any help would be appreciative.
