Now those look to be deliquescing, or turning into black goo, so they might be Coprinus.

I think John is right, those look a lot like Coprinopsis atramentaria, the alcohol inky, to me. (Coprinopsis atramentaria is the new name for Coprinus atramentarius.) Check out this link to mushroomexpert:

http://www.mushroomexpert.com/coprinopsis_atramentaria.html

I hope this info helps! By the way, this species is now considered to be toxic, especially for alcohol users.

Then go to the link that MK provided and at the top of the page where you see

Major Groups > Gilled Mushrooms > Dark-Spored > Coprinoid Mushrooms > Coprinopsis atramentaria

click on 'Dark-Spored' and work through the identification key. I'm terrible at little tiny thin-stemmed mushrooms. I lump them into the not-very-interesting-or-useful category.

The stems are fat and there tall not short the caps did turn to goo stems still intact but it could maybe be a new ink cap? No one can find them cheeked in several books not there can I mail someone spore prints to figure this out?

Maybe you should check with the mycology prof at the local university. If you aren't close to a university with a mycology department, you can always try Tom Volk at University of Wisconsin, LaCrosse.

Looks like a mix of two different coprinus, shaggy mane and inky cap to me.

I'm curious as to why you disagree.

Mushrooms demystified lists coprinus atramentarius ( inky cap, the smooth, grayer ones in your pictures) as having a cap 2-8 cm high or broad, stalk 4-15 cm long, .6-1.5 cm thick.

The rest look like shaggy manes.

Thanks for explaining. I'd still go with inky cap.
