This is a species in Lepiota sect. Lepiota – macroscopically recognizable because of the fluff on the stipe.
Microscopically very easy as they have relatively long spores, either in the shape of penguins, (just like the spores of boletes), or more like parts of oranges, with a round back.
Second difference with L. cristata: the structure of the pileus covering – in this one made up of looooong elements.
