It could be Lepiota felina – that species has such a dark annulus, and the pileus covering is made up of densely packed long cells.
Lepiota clypeolarioides is a European species, but I have never seen it, and do not have a clear idea what it is – there are lots of interpretations, but no clear answers.
Lepiota cortinarius does not have a dark lamella edge, it has funny spores, small penguins, a bit like those of L. aspera and L. acutesquamosa. It shares the long pileus covering cells with L. felina, but they are not as tightly packed and have small elements at the base.
Lots of technical info here.

Lepiota clypeolarioides is very close to if not the same as L. cortinarius. If your species had a dark edge on the ring I would call it L. felina.

What is clypeolarioides?

Ought to be a species resembling clypeolaria. In my opinion it doesn’t, this looks more like Lepiota felina or something like that.
