Two different mushrooms. I'm sure they are the same species, but one is growing dome shaped, the other is inverted.

very nice spotting Adam,the diference between the two is a question of age,the less open,dome shape is younger,the other inverted is older,more opened,the species is dificult to say,at first site i would say that could be a laccaria species,or tubaria species,lets wait that some of our fungi specielists give you a suggestion,any way,is a very nice finding and the photos are very good to,with the gills well showed to make the id easier,i use to make also,spore prints ,its even better in the id's
