Too small for Stropharia riparia

Stropharia riparia (Leratiomyces percevalii) is smaller based on the descriptions I have read. Look at the photo of me holding the mushroom. There were bigger ones in the patch, and this one has a 6 to 8 inch stalk. This exceeds the upper limit for what is typical for Stropharia riparia. But it does look like a Stropharia of some sort.
