a ring on the stalk? If not, then I would consider Pluteus petastus as a possibility. I have found these during mid to late spring growing from soil/mulch that has woody debris mixed in.

I agree that the gills look too pale (Agaricus augustus is one that darkens late, though). But it is more likely Leucoagaricus.

that agarics in the “arvensis” group long hold the bright color of the gills just turning a slight greyish pinkish for a long time before finally shortly before rotting away they fully develop the brown gill hue …
And the squamules on the cap combined with the yellowish greenish tint point to A. arvensis group too … but it’s just an opinion and a guess!
Another possibility could be Stropharia rugosoannulata fo. lutea HONGO which I myself found so pale many years ago.

although the fruitbody is fully mature, the gills are still white. I don’t think that it is a sterile Agaricus, but would places this one in Lepiota s.l., may be in Leucoagaricus.
