If they're Agrocybe arvalis, then you may be able to dig up a sclerotium attached to a stalk, or a rhizomorph. Sclerotia are small bundles of hyphae that some species use to trigger the growth of fruit bodies. Also consider the species A. putaminum.

I'm not sure if the sclerotia hold together (or disintegrate) after the mushrooms have been in situ for awhile. Or, the sclerotia may be buried a few inches beneath the bases of the stalks... not sure. The thin stalks seem more like what to expect from A. arvalis than A. putaminum. The latter has larger spores.
