A huge group of these ink-caps that sprouted near the base of a particular tree.
In the wide-angle photo, a lone Leccinum can be seen in the upper right corner, which went unnoticed at the time and when I first reviewed the photographs.
It’s clearly one of the boring brown-capped, white-with-black-flecks-stalked varieties that are as big a pain to ID to species as Lepidellas, red-capped Russulas, white Clitocybes, and brown corts. So I’m not really all that bothered not to have taken a closer look at it.
(P.S.: Anyone know why the heck the venerable name Coprinus micaceus is deprecated?)
