I agree with redeye311, after reviewing the photo here:

As Well I also like the Macrocharacters described here:

Primarily for the description of the volva-like ridge and conical and often broadly umbonate.

I would say that is what we have here.

I apologize for the delay, however I would ask for some patience in the future for in-depth research does require some time.

Lets start with the Pictures:
1: Without a reference scale it is hard to determine the exact measurements, thus I will assume to be rather tall, with a larder diameter cap.
2: The habitat appears terrestrial so I will assume it be growing on decaying wood, due to the location and organic matter surrounding it.
3: I would say the gills are crowed.
4: At the base of the stem, I believe this to be the remains of a veil.

Thus using the key here: http://www.mushroomexpert.com/coprinoid.html I will use short hand to denote my progression through it.

1: mushroom fairly large >5cm ⌀
5: not growing on dung
30: appearing terrestrial
31: —→Coprinus alnivorus Unlikely
31: Stem without ring, I am overlooking this for now
32: Mature Cap >1cm ⌀
34: no ozonium
36: relatively naked
38: blank
39: Young Cap not White
40: Young cap brownish
44: spores skiped
45: Cap center not depressed C. atramentaria

I will agree with C. atramentaria, however still it is possible that it is not due to the apparent necessity to use spores for differentiation.

why not Coprinopsis atramentaria group
It would be better, if you gave me a few
reason what it is

Reason is Not Likely
By: A.genet (A.genet)

I chose not likely due to the following:
1: The apparent size
2: The appearance of a ring zone at the base of stipe.
3: The limited number of fruit bodies in the cluster.
4: The nipple on the top of the cap.
