Id Request

I found these in wood chips/mulch/soil surrounding a magnolia tree in south-central Pa.. I know the spore print is a little lacking, probably should have left the cap set longer.

I am not an expert but compare to Stropharia Rugosoannulata....it comes in a tan cap phase.....someone (likely Dave) will be by to give a more definitive ID.....

Print is a bit thin. Taking it on white/black surface is a good idea. In 7th photo down, is that purplish area part of a spore print or maybe some sort of reflection? 

There are three cap-color variants for Stropharia rugosoannulata, burgandy red, pale beige or almost white, and yellow. Difficult to say which one is seen here, as the pigmented varieties are apt to fade. One of the mushrooms in photo #6 appears to lack a ring on the stalk. S. rugosoannulata sometimes loses it's ring, but if you're new to IDing this species, it's best to expect there to be a prominent ring on the stalk. The grayish gills attached to the stalk and the white rhizomorphs  (thickened threads) at the base of the stalk both help support an ID of S. rugosoannulata.

Thanks GJC and Dave.

I think that may be a reflection on photo #7. I was hoping by the time i was able to visit the area where I found these there would be more so I could take a better spore print but there wasn't
