Maybe Psathyrella or Coprinus

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Please see attached pictures. Found in broad leaved ancient oak woodland growing on stump. No distinct smell. Did not taste. Spores dark but possibly purple brown. I'm a bit colour blind. Found 09/11/18. Found after rain so appear to be drying to lighter colour.
