I looked at the picture again of the older specimens and noticed the annulus, not sure how I missed it before. Has to be Coprinus, C. sterquilinus looks good.

Don’t really look like the older specimen you posted earlier, the uv remnants don’t really look right nor does the stature. I would of thought the older specimen was something similar to Coprinopsis lagopus, the newer one more like Coprinus. Compare with observation 83847.
