These are some mushrooms I found in a mini fairy ring on my lawn. I don't think they're particularly unusual, but as I haven't seen them before I was wondering if anyone could I identify them. The centre of the mushrooms are blackish brown colour which fades to a burnished red/brown turning to a yellowy beige. The mushrooms are thin with a scalloped texture. The mushroom closest to the top of the photo in pictures one and three appears to have a stripy pattern on the upper side. I was wondering if the 'stripy' mushroom could be either a different kind of mushroom or perhaps the mushroom in an earlier stage of growth than the others.
