A large clump of chocolate coloured mushrooms arranged like candelabra on the base and around a dead tree trunk (probably a eucalypt). The caps were smooth and dome shaped with some older mushrooms having a depressed centre. The colour was uniform on the caps. Gills were creamy brown with spaced gills. There was a brown powdery look to some of the gills ?cystidia. The stipe was plain and a pale brown.

I thought that these might be Coprinellus sp but the caps were fairly firm to touch and the mushrooms did not look delicate. There were no linear markings on the caps either. Could someone please confirm this ID - thaks.
