My partner and I were out Morelling and came acrossed these strange little guys. We always keep an eye out for the other varities while searching for edibles. These have us stumped... consulted several field guides and books but can't find anything about this LBM.

These were growing at the base of a stump in a grassy/weedy damp location.
Notice the stark white stalks without veil remnants, the cap is ridged not "smooth" like most Panaeolus mushrooms. There was no blue reaction when broke. The spore print was purplish black when we made one. I'm sure someone with more knowledge can tell us what these neat mushrooms are right away. If anyone needs anymore information we have specimens on hand. Thanks!!!

Those are close to Coprinus micaceus, a very common edible mushroom this time of year.

To verify the ID, you need to look closely (a magnifier helps) at the cap surface for tiny, mica-like (like glitter) particles. If you see them, then you have it. If not, they can wash off and there are some very similar looking mushrooms.

Happy mushrooming!

Yea, Coprinus micaceus, we have alot of these around here. They can grow anywhere, gravel roads, bark, grass, wood D:
They're also very fragile.?

Yep, VERY fragile, don't see any mica glitter however (but it did rain hard this morning just before we found them). We've gone back to the books and web looking at Coprinus micaceus photos now, none of the examples seem to look much like what we have here, though Audubon's guide says the species is a complex, so we may just have a local variety. Thanks for quick replies, you guys are the best, we've been meaning to join now for a while and today's find made joining a must, we're glad to be a part of this board.
