Hello everyone! I have attached a picture that I could really use some help ID'ing. 

 

Was found on a hillside in very wet dirt accompanied by grass and growing in huge groups in one spot, then scattered groups elsewhere near. They were found in Northern Minnesota. Unsure if these are natural or planted by someone.

 

Other info: Smell: Mushroomy, shape: semi hemispherical, touch: is slightly sticky and tacky, visually smooth, they started out a creme color but started turning brown, flesh of the cap is thin on some and thick on others, the gills are crowded but visible, stems are hollow, the consistency is cartilaginous, I could not identify any rings, Spore print is BLACK.

Third time's a charm!

Since you're now a Free Member, I'll move this over to Wild Mushrooming for more views and commentary. 

 

Ps. 

Looks like your mushrooms are of the psathyrella genre. They fruit from submerged, decaying, root structures of dead trees.

Otherwise known as "inky caps" from the way they decompose. NOT edible 

 

Myc is, as usual, correct about their fruiting and from what source. A very common mushroom in most regions
