Shrooms in my Backyard

The little white clotches growing below each caps are "pinnings".
...and yes... this one is growing on a cut branch of an Orange Bell Tree. Quite a distance from specimen #14.

Im thinking that im having here a patch of Death Angels. Their prints are rusty brown, stalks are hollow, but they dont have rings.
Any ID in this one? Is this an Angel?
If anybody is interested to have a print of this one, i could send one in exchange for stamps(used or not) 'coz im also a newbie philatelist. He-he-he!

White paper isn't the only paper to use for spore color i.d.ing, use black paper too. That way if you have white spores, you will see them. Ideally you would use a paper that was white on one half & black on the other, then put the cap right on the middle.
What im doing actually is that if i suspect the specimen mushroom to be edible, i use a dark color paper. If think its not edible, i use white paper. But i think you have a point there. I'll try that sometimes.
Could it be possible that you help me ID specimen photos #1, #14, #15, #16 & #17?

So i'd better start posting.
Here's quite an odd mushroom.
Its quite small, about 2-3cm tall. Color is oviously brown. Its cap looks like a funnel. It also has gils.
Any ID on this one?

Its growing on a twig. Got white gills and white prints of this one also. Caps dont turn to ink when they mature. This just crackle dry then disappear(decompose back to earth actually).
Now i got speciment photos #1, #14, #15, #16, #17, #18, & #19 without IDs. Common guys....

# 18 Possibly a mushroom in the Xeromphalina genus, but not quite sure exactly which one.
Oh, you must be right. I tried to google "Xeromphalina" and finally arive at this one:
It says there that this is Xeromphalina kauffmanii...
...so#18 must be too.
Here's the link to that page: http://www.nybg.org/...l/xerokauf.html
You did it again Sgt! Thanks!

OK then. It might not be exactly Xeromphalina kauffmanii but it belongs to the same genus. ...got it...
Now i only got specimen photos #1, #13, #14, #15, #16, #17, & #19 without IDs...

Here's the 20th specimen i found:
I found this in our neighbors grassy lawn.
Its quite fleshy; got fresh smell. Got clean white prints of this one too. Looks like its edible but take note of the "ring".
Hope this one would be easy to ID....

This one is at the grassy lawn of our neighbor. Its growing on soil.
This one is also growing on soil. I just cant take a closer picture on this one 'coz its between two cement walls under a bunch of banana trees.
...any ID yet?

Here's another one that looks like oysters...actually, i hope this one really is a wild oyster.
I found this still on a dead trunk used as a pot holder of a bonsai (see 2nd last picture). These were very white. Got white prints too. I you look at the last picture again, you can see white spores spreading on the ground under it.
Unlike speciment #15 and #16, this one's soft and fleshy. This got fresh smell too.
I also got dried specimen of this one. If you're interested with the dried ones, just PM me. I could send you some for some little things in exchange of course.
...hope to get an ID on this one too...

This is the picture i got from their website:
And here's mine from #20:
Both pictures seemed look the same specimen to me...
Here's a link to their website: http://www.ne.jp/asahi/mushroom/tokyo/
...A nice website to visit if species cannot be IDed...
