I think this is mushroom species is Coprinopsis from the family Psathyrellaceae and the genus corpinus as is the image posted on 333/365, a shroom with a shawl.  They only grown in one specific location on our property, where as other mushroom varieties appear all over the place.

This particular species is white with black ink-like spores. They grow in nitrogen-rich habitats such as muck soils, dung, and soft wet decayed wood, which explains why it grows so well on the redwood-mulched fire road down the creek on our property.
