I have bumped into those a lot too looking in b'ham......in alder chipped areas. I was going to post a pic of them as well but ya beat me to it. Saves me the time..... I'll add that a spore print of the ones I found were mostly blackish with the faintest hue of purple.
ciao

Well, juding how the edges of the cap are all broken off with the gills exposed, and its got that hairy/fuzzy stuff on the cap, I'd say its some sort of Coprinus. Does the white stuff on the cap wipe off easily? Does the cap of the mushroom eventualy melt off into a black goo leaving just the stem?

definately looks like a coprinus. mabey a shaggy mane, though it looks as if it is starting to delliquess at the margin so it's past it's eating prime (if shaggys realy have one).

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

Shaggy parasols have white spore prints, an annulus, a fairly bulbous base, and large caps which open up (becoming almost plane) when mature.  They are not related to Shaggy Manes, although during some stages of fruit development they look similar because of their color, shape, and "shaggy" caps.

yeah, uhm.
it's definitely coprinus.
although it's not the shaggy mane OR the shaggy parasol.
the shaggy mane (coprinus comatus) is larger and fleshier, although almost exactly like that specimen. that one is maybe atramentarius or some shit.
the shaggy parasol is a lepiota. lepiota rachodes, i believe, (some say MACROlepiota, to distinguish it from smaller lepiotas, which are often deadly)

those mushrooms, the coprinus, i mean, are probably to ephemeral to think of eating.
just my two cents.

Coprinus picaceus.
-It has a unpleasant, foetid smell, and it is not recommended as an edible.

Keep shroomin,

I've been looking around some of the parks in town and it looks as though many many people have tromped through and picked any mushroom growing on bark. I see de-capped stems and mushroom clumps ripped up and discarded on the bark everywhere I go. But I've managed to find a couple spots of my own just in residential neighborhoods. It's raining hard today and looks like we're in for about 4 more days of this. Excellent.
