I grow mushrooms and planted agrocybe aegerita (aka A. cylindria, apparently the preferred name) my garden bed which contains a decent amount of saw dust and straw. I ate these and they are definitely the same species I was growing six months earlier. They grew in hot dry weather (which is why the annulus is lacking)in direct sun. so their appearance is different than when cultivated indoors, but this is definitely agrocybe cylindrica.

Sorry I don’t have more photos.
