Can someone ID these pls?

Recommended Posts

I just found these in some cow dung. They have a distinctive smell. A very familiar smell. But I'm not sure if mushrooms typically have a distinctive smell?


They don't seems to bruise when I squeeze the stem. They may be a week or two old?

Any thoughts?

They look like Leucocoprinus. Maybe compare them to Leucocoprinus cepistipes, which is known to occur in Queensland.  I'm not sure it grows on dung though (grows in rich soils and on mulch).  Actually, I'm not sure any species of Leucocoprinus grows on dung.   There's mostly a tropical genus however, so very not in my  wheelhouse.
