little mushroom -canberra, Australia

Hi Folks
after digging away in my garden for a while I sat down against a tree in my garden only to squash a patch of mushrooms (I'm more interested in growing than hunting!  :wink:

I'm not looking for a positive Id I was just wondering if you guys have any idea what it might be  - don't worry I don't intend on munching them down - I pretty much finished them off when I sat on them !
I will do my best to describe where it was  - it was at the base of this tree



the actual mushroom looked like this



and the insides like this



They were growing in the deeper grass around the tree in a small scattered group the spore print was a smokey soft brown - the more mature mushrooms ( decaying ) were turning a deep terracotta red/brown. hmm  the ambient temp was about 22 degrees C during the day with nights at about 5/6ish ( I think) hmm I can't think of anything else -
Apologies if I have missed some vital information
cheers
Jim

Tis Coprinus micaceus or similar species. Not active, not worth eating. If you do eat it, don't drink alcohol for 3-6 days afterwards, they contain a chemical that is similar to antibuse- the drug they use to treat alcoholics. If you drink after eating these mushrooms you'll get really sick.
