I am quite unsure. I simply chose as closely as I could with the resources I have. I would be delighted with a correction. Though, now that you mention it, I’m leaning a bit more toward A. silvaticus, or something similar.

Also, it’s not quite in the woods… more like a lawn with several large oaks.

R U sure?

Arora sez argenteus is a “grass-lover”; your mushroom is in a woods.

what characters did you use to get it to species? agaricus is a tough group to ID; photo IDs alone are mostly insufficient.
