My first thought is that they resemble a coprinus species. You might want to get a spore print to further aid the ID process and check to see if the gills become inky (dark fluid like) as those specimens age.

they were found in Wa state also some were growing under a rock. no scent, attached gills, small, heigth about pinky size, light orange colour. stem white/off white, didn't see colour change exept the gills becoming dark even black. hope that helps. i will do a print now.


a. Habitat (where [state/province/country] and what does it grow on)
b. Characteristics of the gills (color, attached/not, gills/pores, etc)
c. Measurements of cap and stem.
d. Characteristics of the stem (color, texture, hollow/solid, thin/thick, etc)
e. Characteristics of the cap (color, texture, conical/spherical, convex/concave, etc)
f. Spore print color (very important!)
g. Color that the mushroom bruises
h. Scent of mushroom

The gills of Coprinus species do normally turn blackish as they age. Coprinus micaceus is a very common mushroom that is pretty adaptive to cool weather and closely resembles those in your photos.

This is what Coprinus micaceus(mica cap) looks like when it melts:



They usually grow in big groups near rotting wood, there are alot of them at this time.
