The disposition of the remains of veil, indicates that this is a Coprinellus sec. domesticity. To realize the kind we need microscopic features. .

Byrain, they were not fruiting from a mat of orange fuzz.

Were they fruiting from an orange carpet of fuzz (ozonium)? I don’t see it in the pictures. If not, maybe Coprinellus flocculosus. Not sure how far their range extends east.

They didn’t appear “mica-like” to me either. Coprinellus micaceus is just the closest thing it resembled to me.
They were growing in clusters. It was just the only fresh specimen, the others were dried up already.
Feel free to throw some more suggestions out there.

The smell was pleasant. Like that of Agaricus bisporus.

Those don’t look like mica granules to me, are they growing in a clustered fashion? (Doesn’t look like it in the pictures)
