Photo and description seems close to Leucocoprinus longistriatus in A Field Guide to Southern Mushrooms.

I’ve seen photos from Dr. Vellinga of Lepiota from tropical areas, and a few of those bled golden droplets. I’ve also seen Lepiotas bleed golden droplets here in Cali, not sure I got a good photo of it though.

Wow, how cool. Maybe some Lepiotoid mushroom. Those droplets are likely taxonomically significant.
