It would be interesting to see gills, stem and ring...

Single image

I agree, ideally images of cap, gills, stipe and spore print with some measurements would greatly assist identification. However the nature of the location would not allow this without breaking up the cluster. Regards

Not a problem

It does not effect the fungi if you remove one and as Martincito say's you need photo's of stem,gills to determine correct id also a cut through section of stem for flesh colour,smell if any.The spores of fungi are dispersed long before the fruiting body matures.
