Found these fellas in South Wales, thought they might be lib caps but can’t be sure.
Their gills are creamy and I struggled to peel the outer membrane so that threw me a little. Also I can’t really get a spore print from them but idk if that’s just because they’re juvenile.

Any input would be grand.

Thanks very much

Not libs. Try twisting the stem around your finger, is it tough and strong or does it break?

 

This may be useful :- http://fungiflora.co...ata-lookalikes/

 

FWIW - I think you may have a Pholiotina sp there.

The stem doesn’t come off easily. Think you’re right however.
Thanks very much this is really useful.

Also while I’ve got your attention, could you take a look at these as well?

Closer but still not definitely Psilocybe sp.  Looks like a Panaeolus sp. to me. Sorry.

 

Do you Facebook? I don't generally recommend going into that toxic cesspool of inhumanity but there are some useful mushroom groups on there. Universal Magic (Liberty caps UK) is probably one you would find useful. You do get to see lots of examples of what is and what isn't Liberty Cap in various states of age and wetness. It's quite the eye opener if you've only previously had the pictures in one or two field guides to go by and not seem many in the flesh.
