What kind of mushroom is this?

Asked December 24, 2019, 9:13 PM EST

Hello, Are the mushroom shown attached pictures Grisette’s. They’re growing in a 5 acre white oak forest that we brushed out (choked with blackberries). It was last farmed at least 80 years ago, then left to the forces of nature until this year. Thanks! Ian

These are not grisettes, Amanita vaginata and relatives. They are too small, and lack a universal veil. These mushrooms are probably Coprinellus impatiens, a small mushroom common growing on debris in oak woods.
