Indian and South American fungi have a lot of correlations. Very interesting.

C. nivea was coprophilic. The gills were white but I just assumed they hadn’t begun to deliquesce. I’m going with Leucocoprinus cretaceus.

Yeah, I agree with Timmit. It looks something like Leucocoprinus cretaceus, but I don’t know that species’ range or preferred substrate. Cystolepiota came to mind, but I doubt it, it doesn’t look right for that.

Coprinopsis nivea is a coprophilic species. Do you remember whether the gills were black or white? They stike me as a Leucocoprinus sp.
