Dried black fungi

Something of a mystery! I found about 5 or 6 of these jet black chaps a couple of years ago in April. They were scattered around a mossy area, near unimproved grassland with a good mix of tree species. Each was dried to a crisp and approx 2 to 3 inches in height. I wondered about blackening waxcaps but was surprised that they were so dry and perfectly formed. I'm curious about this side as much as the ID side! Any thoughts?
