Coprinus seems to have been split up in 2001, so there's all kinds of names floating around for the leftovers--and no doubt this species fits in somewhere in them! I've found some very similar here in Oregon. They sure don't last very long!

This is the same group of mushrooms identified as Coprinopsis by Argy Bee (photographed on different days) - I think this is correct as the appearance is similar to other photos on the net.

You may be right - the images on the internet appear to be different from the observation. I am a complete novice regarding fungal taxonomy - am only good at observation and photography!

I would tend to agree with Argy. You might look at this key for Coprinus relatives, even though it's for the Pacific Northwest of the United States.
