Might be,

Though looks more like the glistening ink cap. I have yet to study these so I don't really know the finer points of the Coprinus group. :)

lose

They can lose the the mica partials with age heavy rain, Fairy inkcap is tiny and much more delicate than glistening inkcap. I think it gets easier to id them when you see them often and at different stages of growth
