I'm never sure of my fungi IDs - the Common ink cap was my two-pence worth... Anyway, if not that one, it definitely looks like one of ink-caps or coprinoid fungi from Psathyrellaceae family; and mainly because of general shape, then that recurving edge that is starting to decompose and liquify; and there is no ring visible
