I’m positive it’s an Agaricaceae (has gills) and probably is an Agaricus species, with those pinkish chocolate-brown gills. If the field was fertilized with Agaricus bisporus residue/substrate, you’d have an excellent idea of what this probably is. Many times the growing media for mushroom cultivation is used as fertilizer/soil amendments afterwards, and is still capable of producing more mushrooms.
