It can have many, many more scales than just the few shown. But the cap is in the shape of an elongated ovoid, not just the top of it as your other obs. shows.
Later, the fungus will start to deliquesce: a fascinating feature which the pioneers used to their advantage by making ink out of Coprinus. My gr-gr-gr-grandfather’s diary across the plains in 1853 was written in Coprinus ink.
Coprinus is likely to be found in cow pies or horse apples (it likes both). It will also grow in just straw, provided the straw has been supplemented with other things. ;)
