You can see pink spore deposits on the gills. These mushrooms are about three or four inches tall. They were growing under large ferns in an area with mixed hardwoods and hemlock. Very dark brown/black mushrooms.

My gut reaction is Laccaria, could also see Gymnopus or something thereabout. Did you get prints for these?
