I am surprised, too. Check this one: http://mushroomobserver.org/61331?q=3EDk
I will add observations on the rest of my LA suspects and see what Walt says about them! Do you have Leucoagaricus americanus in Oregon?

has some varied macroscopic features, just reviewing the examples here on MO. The below mentioned 61330 really surprised me that we were looking at the same species. Even my observation here shows a characteristic that surprised a few.
