I figure he can't be a chanterelle because his gills are straight, not forked or branched like a chanterelle should be.

I have pored through the National Audubon Society Field Guide to Mushrooms and I'm at a loss for what this might be.

I'm sorry I haven't done a spore print yet, there are more growing in the yard yet so I could maybe do one soon if anybody has a clue and wants that data.

These are growing near oak/maple/pine trees. In the grass. Quite abundant and scattered.

One thing that really stands out to me is how the top side is quite grooved.

Some of them are pretty torn up. I don't know if they were just trampled or if some animal has considered eating them. If the latter, I guess they weren't that great because many are still there.

I first saw these a couple of weeks ago and they're still coming in.

I'm working on two posts about other mushrooms on our property, and there should be another about some stump fungus.

If anybody thinks it would be fun to come out here and check my yard/area, I'm in Roselle very near Bloomingdale. I'm very near the forest preserve that you see along Roselle/Bloomingdale Rd - just south of when it turns to Bloomingdale Rd, a little north of Lake Street. I haven't gone foraging in the forest preserve yet but I'm betting there's more of the same and perhaps some other stuff.
