Parasol?

I’ve seen a few Chlorphyllum molybdites in my day, but what you’ve found does not seem like it. The margin is not so scaly/shaggy, and I’ve seen them grow only in urban settings, i.e. lawns, parks, grassy areas, poor soil, whereas yours was found in the woods. I would suggest the parasol Lepiota rhacodes, as it matches your find nicely: right habitat, color, cap texture, and ring. Compare with these images: http://waynesword.palomar.edu/parasol.htm
It’s all up to you, but that just doesn’t seem like C. molybdites to me.
