Observation 8192: Hypholoma (Fr.) P. Kumm.

I thought I wouldnt have any trouble suggesting a name to put to these Fungi, but that came to a sudden halt when I started comparing images. I thought originally that they might be Coprinus atramentarius, (commonly called Inky caps.
When I had a look at the caps, they didnt seem to be as like those in my reference.
They were growing in cleared grassland on the edge of the forest perimeter and were not uncommon in this area when I frequented it during several seasons.

Recognized by sight: If they were in the US, I’d guess they were old somewhat odd Hypholoma fasciculare given the black spores and the greenish done in the cap. However, they aren’t as clustered as this species typically is and they look a bit different to me.
