Unknown inkcap species

Observed: 15th September 2013 By: Martin D. ParrMartin D. Parr’s reputation in Fungi and Lichens

These were all taken on a bioblitz on the same day in same area - I'm not sure that the older ones are the same species as the first 2. They were all grwoing on a woodchip path. Can anyone ID the species?

Coprinus pachyspermus, but not very like many published images. The woodchip may not be native, so possibly an alien?

Think you may have 2 species

Think you may have 2 species - ?

The more I know the more I realise I don't know

Quire possibly?

Cheers Amadan - the wood chip was our own - from Poplar loppings. I though that grew on cow dung?

Thank you Marksteer - quite possibly - these shots were taken my 2 people on the same path and day, but not sure they are the same species by any means.
