Recognized by sight: In the first photo, the brown staining just under the cap on the stipe is strongly suggestive of C. brunneum, a species which I have been misidentifying for years. This may be the most common Chlorophyllum in the PNW.

shows a bit of that annulus, which in this case is skirted and believable of brunneum. I left a comment with a key to Chlorophyllum species of the PNW in one of your other observations.
