I thought it might be an Agaricus species but I couldn’t figure out if it was something like A. langei (which I thought wasn’t supposed to grow around here). By the way…thanks for the super fast response.

FIrst time…

It just rained and I found these in two places in my yard. One where bird seed had turned into plants and the other place was by the raspberry bush. The older one looked completely different to the younger ones. Brown spores, small bit of veil left as ring, no volva, thinish stipe that had a distinct middle part on the oder one.
