These are growing clumped together. 5-6" tall. Stems are white, strong, with a hollow core, 1/4" thick x 4-5". Gills are very very light tan almost looking white, showing veil remnants. Caps are a medium caramel color,slightly umbonate/conical(?)firm...beefy. Edges of cap are lighter in color.
No bluing at all. Spore print is very light chocolate/lavender. Growing in a mulched area of my flower beds. Have never seen these elsewhere at all. Thanks for any id's.

Is the cap dry, moist, or sticky to slimy?
Is there any distinctive odor?
Taste a tiny piece of one (be sure to spit it out) and let us know if it's bitter (it should be obvious).

Try doing the spore print overnight or longer to get a good heavy deposit of spores. I suspect it will come out darker than you described.

At first glance they look like Hypholomas, in which case the spore print should be significantly darker than you described.

Happy mushrooming!

Leaving it to spore print overnight as suggested. Smells like a nice fresh mushroom. The piece tasted was bitter-ish, but not extremely so. The cap is not slimey or sticky...it is 'rubbery' feeling. Will give results of overnight spore in the am. Thanks so much.

To re-iterate: Tasted a tiny piece, it was somewhat bitter. After letting spore print spore some more overnight it was a medium choco-brownish/lavender. Plus this morning the smell was not fresh like when I first picked it, but 'metallic'. Hope this helps with the ID. This is a good example of a look a like mushroom. Because it sure has the 'look'(of an active), until it was examined and printed. Thanks again.
