Small mushroom I can not ID

I found multiple large mounds of these. New to identifying mushrooms, so I am not sure. I left them there but took pictures. Let me know if more pictures or info is needed.

Re: Small mushroom I can not ID

I did take photos of the gills, but the quality is not good. The gills are dark brown and looked slightly wet. The stem was white,hollow, and split into hair like strands when I pinched off one. Anyone know of the hardiness of these with frost. Near the four large clusters I also found two clusters just barely pushing through the ground, any chance these young ones will survive the frost tonight. Where do I find the video you mentioned?

Re: Small mushroom I can not ID

That was a real good description of the stem. Paying attention to those details is key to good mushroom ID and to getting help on mushroom ID. Those stem features are not unique, but do fit the Coprinus genus of mushrooms.

Besides, they are most definitely micas. Later in the year you could run intro some deadly ones that might look vaguely similar. It always to pays to be 100% sure though, ALWAYS. :)
