Have to think about this one. Notice gills are mottled.........

OK. I think the funny little pale things with the fruiting bodies might be unopened Cyathus, which is very abundant in the cow poop.

Oh those pale things are actually growing there! I thought they were sedd pods or something that had fallen off a nearby plant. Not seen anything with that smooth sided shape and more pointed top before. It would be great to cut one in half to see if there are peridioles inside! Or find out what is inside..........

Yeah, well see comment on the ex-Bolbitius sighting. Everything all dessicated now.

I'm wondering if these little ones belong in one of the families Strophariaceae or Hymenogastraceae. there's been a bit of changing of species between these families. Deconica is a thought. Again if they surface again it would be great to look at some spores.

OK, I'll keep an eye out. At least they were right outside the front door, so hard to miss.
