I like the chord that you can still see in both images! Very cool.

ID was based on star-shaped calyptrate hat on the cap, the marginate bulb still in the soil and the dry habitat.

I agree with Darvin’s comment about it being a true Coprinus, but I’m not sure what he’s basing the species name on. How big were these?
