Same mushrooms I think, Coprinus plicatilis... a well manured lawn there ? They are edible, but too small to be worth the effort. I get them in my lawn, on my poo laying in a tub. I leave a tub of wet (they like it WET) poo outside in a rubbermaid justso I can pop the lid sometimes and see thousands of them. They are very cool, so delicate. A few hours later, they're all gone, they deliques.

Sometimes they pop out of my dope pots because I've got lots of composted horse manure in there. Their colour varies from pinky-white to white, to gray and even almost black.

On a sidenote, My foaf had 2 large (haha 20g's wet !) shrooms (the magic kind) pop out from under the "peace in the home" in 2 pots of his orchids :) old casing material tossed in the pot under the peace in the home and now its living symbiotically with the orchid roots and fruiting.

I got loads outside in my tub o poo and a few popped out my dope pot this morning. Just had a look....
They like their substrate wet, it rained this weekend. Like pooling wet, saturated wet haha wierd. Pity I got no camera handy otherwise I could post some more pics.. There is a pile of poo, sitting in a pool of water, with hundreds popping out the bit that isn't submerged.
I call em my parachute mushies...

I'm not so sure that it's a Coprinus. It looks more like some kind of a Marasmius or Collybia. If they autodeliquesce (self-digest or dissolve into an inky liquid), then it is indeed a Coprinus.

This corprinus does not look like a usual one though, but does autodeliquesce...
hence...
& They are very cool, so delicate. A few hours later, they're all gone, they deliques.
haha they occur in my region and I've got em in both my feild guide unmistakable.

Wait let me do a google...
http://www.first-nat..._plicatilis.htm
http://collectivesou...plicatilis.html
http://www.mykoweb.c...plicatilis.html
http://www.uoguelph....ARK/coprin3.htm

Yup unmistakable. I see the one page says & Note: recent genetic evidence indicates that this species should no longer be considered in the genus Coprinus. The new proposed name is Parasola plicatilis (Fries) Redhead."
And the description & Unlike most ink caps, this delicate little fungus has a cap that flattens and then shrivels rather than its gills deliquescing (turning to a black inky liquid).& seems more true than proper sliming :)

So theres the answer..
Hip, you must see a hundred or 2 or 3 popping off a wet pile of poo in a bin...they are so delicate, beautiful.
