dark edged annulus

yes, a dark edged annulus – the annulus connects to the pileus margin, so yes, many species in Leucoagaricus sect. Rubrotincti for instance have some colour on the annulus from the pileus covering.

Lepiota felina as an annulus which looks like a wedding band, with black stuff on the outside, not a flaring annulus as the pictured mushrooms.

looks like it has a dark edged veil.

in the Leucoagaricus / Leucocoprinus clade

definitely not a Lepiota in the strict sense.
Too white on the stem (no veil remnants visible), and the cap covering is too thin for a Lepiota as well.

and there are no clamp connections!

thank you for your comment, Else!

I have it back to agaricales sensu lato to see if someone can pin a better name to it.

most probably another species

Leucocoprinus brebissonii has a very discrete dark ‘calotte’ strongly contrasting with the light (white) rest of the cap surface – this mushroom is much more gradually coloured, so i think it is another species.
