Western Missouri, started popping up in new flower bed around June 30th, was told that the newly placed topsoil had high cow manure content. Just curious what kind of mushrooms they are, I haven't had ones like these pop-up before. The stipe is white/grayish, but the cap is much grayer than it looks in the top picture. The underside of the cap has black on the gills that are "inky."

I have been trying to use the MycoKey identifier and it kind of looks like a mycena bonnet but all of the picture of the mycena bonnet show gills that are much more pronounced than this one

See if you can also get the bulb below the stem - that can be the difference between an ID and a mis-ID on some species. Get the whole thing.

Coprinus fimetarius, Coprinous comatus, or Parasola plicatilis. I think

they are actually growing on the mulch and not the underlying soil

I am pretty sure it's a species of the Parasola genus. Maybe the Parasola auricoma based on the size of the cap which is 1-4 centimeters.

Maybe its this: Shaggy Ink Cap
Coprinus comatus (Agaricaceae)
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
