There is a species described by Zeller from Oregon and known only from the type collection: Agaricus cervinifolius. When I studied the type specimen, it seemed related to A. californicus, but somewhat different — it had some scales. Yours reminds me more of A. cervinifolius than A. californicus, but we don’t know yet exactly how to recoginze A. cervinifolius (if it is different — and yours does seem different from A. californicus).
There is one other possibility, an undescribed species I’ll call “D” for now. Spore size data can separate the two.
Specimens of your mushroom would be useful to future studies!
They smell pretty bad and stain yellowish slowly. A. californicus sounds pretty close to me.
Compare with A. xanthodermus and A. californicus.
