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.

Panaeolus sp., it's rather past it and I wouldn't like to take it much further. Perhaps P. semiovatus looks like this when very old; there might be a young one in the background.

Thanks Chris! Didn't realized it was a Panaeolus before since I never seen their fully opened caps.
