Found on soil under hardwoods. There was an odor, maybe it could be described as “like a rubberband?” The bulb is distinctive, with a collar. The gills were very close and narrow. Also, there is a very thick cobwebby veil.

At least it helps provide some context for grouping it with other stuff.
Echinoderma is a cool name, but Lepiota is more familiar.
Lepiota aspera http://mushroomobserver.org/observer/observation_search?pattern=lepiota+aspera
and Lepiota acutesquamosa
this is the 3rd posting for this species on MO. Index Fungorum says it gets plopped in Agaricaceae, just like everything else
…well not everything. It has similarities with several other mushrooms.
and Thanks Walt- I haven’t even uploaded half of the pictures yet!
Edit- first collection in the US?
