You’re going to be hard pressed to identify this if it is really in Coprinopsis sect. Lanatuli. You should try going through the key here if you actually want to learn why…

Remember that is a European key, as far as I am aware there aren’t any keys that good meant for the States yet.

Edit: Also these two observations you applied Coprinopsis lagopus to are certainly not the same species, just look at the stem texture…
