No specimen available

A small mushroom most commonly found in grassy areas. The stalk is slender and does not have a ring. The cap is cone-shaped at first and then usually becomes flatter. Radial grooves spread out from a smooth center. There are no scales or other signs of a universal veil. The narrow gills are black. This mushroom is not as evanescent as many inky caps, and the gills do not liquify as quickly.

I don’t know if you have noticed but if you click on any of the proposed names above you can see a description as well as much more information(if one has been made) and also any other observations of that species.
Look at Coprinellus micaceus in particular
