The substrate is plant matter? … Or may be remnants of feces? …

If plant will most likely be Coprinopsis lagopus. I repeat again that only a visual impression …!!!

Though a certain species determination is probably an impossibility at this point, master of Hawaiian Rhodocollybia Matthew Keirle put this squarely in the C. lagopus arena of possible matches, potentially inhabiting one Coprinopsis section in particular, the name of which I can’t currently remember.

C. lagopus is as good a guess as any for now.
