No specimen available

An Agaricus, obviously, but which one? Faint odor of almond (what I smelled) or licorice (what my daughter smelled.) Slow yellowish/tan staining. Growing in the lawn by my barn this morning. Oklahoma, USA. There were three of these, two that looked like this and a young one that had been stepped on/half eaten. Same odor, though.
