Some Coprinus species dry out, some deliquesce. But it could be as you thought.
But sorry, I am no expert in them. I am not dealing with brown-spored Agarics they kinda hate me (hahaha).
Nevertheless take some research in the domesticus-group. I think it still is the nearest to this.

Hi, Gerhard!

Gerhard, is that really you? You have gotten green and hairy!

I actually do have an herbarium specimen if anyone is interested. Either it has gotten very small or I estimated the size wrong for the larger. I was thinking it may deliquesce, but it may have dryed out before it got a chance.

This is a Coprinus in the old sense.

I am not sure but this looks close to Coprinellus domesticus or some pendant from America.
