No specimen available

I noticed it in mid morning in full ‘bloom’, with nicely shaped cap, almost completely transparent, like made of water poor. Came back with my camera four or five hours later but it was already too late. A very ‘short lived’ creature… Is it possible to determine its name from both pictures?

in the first picture looks great veil remains of woolly-looking general or frayed. So Hood and Descat Coprinellus genres.

Coprinopsis is a sect. Lanatuli.

the deeply pleated cap which recurves in age is quite reminiscent of C. plicatilis
