Mutinus elegans usually has a long tapering curve. Mutinus caninus is straighter with a slighty bulbous head. Mutinus ravenelii is stockier and more common in the east. http://www.mushroomexpert.com/mutinus_elegans.html

wikipedia lists this as occuring “in Europe and eastern North America” and " It is a rarer American species, now spreading in Europe.3 Another North American species Mutinus elegans is very similar to M.ravenelii, and is short and stocky, with a more pointed apex"
