Without seeing microscopic features, it is almost impossible.

Compare with Coprinopsis insiginis = alopecia. We can also consider Coprinopsis spelaiophilla, these two species have the stipe with a pattern similar to zig-zag.
would you mind…

Not a Coprinellus.

It is a species of the genus Coprinopsis because there ornamentation zoned in the foot and the spore print is black at maturity.
very large.

Mica granules

That with the absence of an annulus makes me think they are not Coprinus.
