in the Agaricus campestris group, mushroom expert has some information on getting these to species.

These grow in a neighbor’s cow pasture

across from our house, and I’ve found them occasionally in our yard. When I first started identifying mushrooms, a local told me how he liked to eat “Pink Bottoms.” Apparently, that was the only edible he knew. When I found some growing in the field, I identified them and gave them a try -not bad. I won’t eat any that grows in that field any more, since the neighbor has grown beans there two years in a row and sprayed a lot of chemicals. My main hesitation on the pictures of your specimen is the ones I’ve found are generally shorter and more squatty [edited from original post]. That’s probably what it is, but can’t be absolutely certain.

Very common

This comes up on the front yard with almost the same frequency as C. apala.

I’ve found this several times in the past

but can’t tell for sure it’s what it is by the pictures.
