Good job with the description, MagicSnoop. A little more detail/clarity would be nice, but you did a better job than some people. Good job getting a spore print, too!
Ase, that link did not work for me. There is a picture of Coprinus micaceoushere on Effed's site (third row down on the right). If you do a search for it on google or mamma.com, i'm sure you will find some more images of them to compare the shrooms you found to.
