Lacrymaria lacrymabunda is very common in Europe, also very variable in colour and hairyness on the cap. The hairy stem, and fringed and spotted gill edges, excludes Agrocybe, and points towards Lacrymaria.

where’s the hair?

Lacrymaria lacrymabunda has a really fibrillose cap. This one looks pretty bald to me. If it were springtime, I’d call this an Agrocybe praecox. Maybe there’s an autumn Agrocybe that fits?

some thin other than coprinus

note the evidence of o veil on stalk and the hair cap edge definatly not coprinus

Ink cap?

The gills and spore deposit on the stem look like an ink cap just starting to dissolve, but the cap surface doesn’t look like a typical Coprinus.

I’d guess a nearby genus, such as Psathyrella.
