I didn’t even notice the far right specimen in image #138089 in the field…
I agree that it looks like veil remnants, but its hard to make out. And many of the small pins without any remnants were largely buried under the duff, so I am not so sure the veil would of fully washed away in the rain. Either way, I am attempting to dry the specimens and will be watching this spot more since its close to home and its not the first time I have seen them there.

In image 138089 I think I see a mushroom to the far right of the image that has veil remnants like Coprinellus flocculosus. Based on that and the fact that everything else looks like a match for C. flocculosus, I would it is say ‘promising’.
