Recognized by sight: Woodland habitat, thin stem, I don’t see green spores.

Recognized by sight: The stature, partial veil, stipe ornamentation and length all point towards Macrolepiota and in my view away from Chlorophyllum. The serrated gills and colored gills are unusual. It would be very interesting to see a spore print.

I have just destroyed the Chlorophyllum molybdipes suggestion.

Not because I don’t see green spores. I do.

But there is a feature in the sixth photo, when enlarged, that should not be present: serrated gills. Usually serrated gills is a clear clue for Lentinus or Lentinula. This does not seem to be either one. But neither should Chlorophyllum have serrated gills.
