…just found a picture of the spore print made. http://mushroomobserver.org/229889?q=2hfiT Under magnification I am not so sure if it is dark spored. When looking at it during the field trip I thought that the brown traces were just a discoloring of the cap (the paper was very bad and there was lots of humidity). Sorry for the confusion.

Looks Lepiotoid to me

Due to the stem texture, cap texture and overall look of the thing.

which might show gill attachment. None of mine do. They don’t really seem to be free. Maybe not Agaricaceae after all?

… during my last stay in December 2015 I encountered this species again twice. I made a spore print and the spores are indeed white.

over at Observation 229865 show gill faces with a white dusting. This is almost certainly white spored, and possibly something in the Agaricaceae.
