Unknown Mushrooms 365 Photos Challenge 26 & 27

I saw these mushrooms while out with my client for a walk in the neighborhood. On a later date I decided to research mushrooms to see what kind of mushrooms these were. Due to finding so many that looks similar I was unable to identify them, so I installed a mushroom identifier via Google Play Store which helped me find a collection of similar mushrooms. The fifth image is the collection from the installed application that popped up after I submitted each of my 4 pictures taken. Can you see a resemblance? I have to say that out of the collection that popped up from the installed application these mushrooms look similar to the Lepiota Brunneoincarnata, and Chlorophyllum Molybdites. What do you think?

Picking between the two I would say that it is the Chlorophyllum Molybdites, which can also be referred to as the false parasol, green-spored Lepiota and vomiter. The Chlorophyllum Molybdites is also the most commonly consumed poisonous mushroom in North America, which could be because of its habit of growing near human habitation. On a final note, the Lepiota Brunneoincarnata is widely distributed in Europe and temperate regions of Asia as far east as China.  So that about narrows it down, huh? Because I took these pictures in Skokie Illinois.

With that being said I hope you enjoyed! These photos were shared as part of the 365 Photos Challenge and taken with a Samsung Galaxy S8.
