I checked Macrolepiota mastoidea at Roger’s Mushrooms. Although the ring looks a bit different, the cap and the stem are almost the same. I think you are right. Thanks Irene & Dimitar.

Agree. Macrolepiota. Not procera. Either

This is Macrolepiota, as Irene points out. Not procera, for sure. It reminds one of mastoidea or excoriata, but more pictures and a bit of microscopy are needed to nail the name.

I have collected a similar Macrolepiota species in Bulgaria.

It looks more like Macrolepiota mastoidea.
