On my land in Wyoming I noticed these littleshrooms growing. I put a dime down for scale. If you look closely there is one on the right that I picked and turned over to show the underside. Any ideas about what these are?

Little Brown Mushrooms-LBMs, are often considered hard to identify and not worth the effort by many experienced mushroom ID people. I am not one of them yet, but I eventually aspire to be.

Thanks John. I guess they caught me by surprise, I hadn't seen them before.

John's right, LBMs are extremely difficult to identify, especially over the internet. However, if you could get a spore print from those mushrooms, there is a slight chance that someone here might be able to ID them down to the genus level.
