i think the stem texture rules out Parasola (= Coprinus subsect. Glabri).

2. Stipe glabrous; pileus glabrous or with scattered, microscopical, long, brown hairs.
3. Stipe and pileus glabrous; spores with eccentric germ pore; subsect. Glabri J. Lange
3. Stipe glabrous; pileus under microscope with scattered, long brown hairs (> 200 m); spores with central germ pore; subsect. Auricomi Sing. (only one species: C. auricomus)
2. Stipe and pileus with setulae and/or setae; subsect. Setulosi J. Lange

smooth/gentle color transition between cap center and margin
sulcate, not plicate
even in adults:
– grooves often never get close to the disc
– hemispherical or curved-conic/whatever cap shape

makes Parasola seem unlikely to me, but the main reason is just looking a lot like C. impatiens photos.

caps are too thick
stipes are too thick
large cluster
babies have powdered caps
looks a lot like Coprinellus impatiens
