Looks like it has an annulus visible under the cap on the stipe.

We could start with Agaricales. But without a photo of the hymenium (spore-producing surface), anything beyond that is problematic.

Danny is right. We REALLY need to see the gills, pores, or whatever under the cap. A photo of the entire stipe (stem) would also be useful, as would a photo of the entire fungus sliced through the stipe. Use a shovel if necessary. It might be buried quite deep, garrys.
