i would agree a coprinus of some kind. need an idea of scale. i am wondering about c. picaceus if this was a relatively large fungus (15cm+ tall) which might be rather unusual in this habitat and in this location (usually found in beech woods on chalky soil). however i think it does occasionally grow in other situations. however if the fungus is smaller then this is unlikely.
