Dear Leighton,

your mushroom is definitely a Macrolepiota species, but i do not have a species name for it. As far as I know, the European species do not occur in North America, and there are no names for the North American species, so we are in a vacuum. In Europe some species are known to stain reddish.
I am sorry that i cannot help you any further with that, but if you would like to send me the specimen, so that i can examine it further, that would be great.

with my best wishes,
