Recognized by sight: Seems like the same as the earlier obs. The ring usually disappears.
Look if the description fits well enough (in my books Agrocybe molesta is a synonym):

Here’s the description of Agrocybe dura from Funga Nordica:

Cap soon areolate-rimose; taste not farinaceous. Cap 40-90(-120) mm, first convex, then expanded, not hygrophanous, fleshy and firm, slightly viscid when moist, white, when old with pale yellowish tint, often with white remnants of veil at margin; gills long whitish, finally pale greyish brown with a violet tint; stem 50-90(-110) x 3-10(-15) mm, white, with a cottony, often ephemeral ring, not darkening when handled. Sp 10-14(-18) x 6-8(-9) μm, ellipsoid to oblong, sometimes amygdaloid; cheilo- and pleurocystidia broad, constricted
cylindrical or utriform. On or near decaying grass in cultivated fields and gardens and forests, usually on clayey or calcareous soil; summer

You had fine micro shots of cystidia here!
