These are black mushrooms, approximately 2-4 inches tall. They are very intriguing, I had never seen them before.
Damp soil next to my apartment.
Russula nigricans tend to blacken with time and it usually stays on the ground for a long period of time. When I find them, sometimes fresh ones stand next to some that have been on the ground since the last season.
