Due to the shape of the spores …

… I think there are three species to consider,
according to they dimensions (see http://www.grzyby.pl/...">Uljé Coprinus
site):

6.6-10.8 × 5.5-8.2 × 5.1-6.0 µm – P. kuehneri;
8.1-11.8 × 7.1-10.5 × 5.3-7.0 µm – P. leiocephalus (= P. lactea);
9.9-14.3 × 7.2-10.3 × 6.5-8.1 µm – P. plicatilis.

Since some of your spores appear to be rhomboid, If they are small enough, then P. kuehneri would be a good choice. Please note that a know nothing about the existence of this species in north america.
