Something is different this year

our “typical” Agaricus looks like this: Observation 120323, where there is a dark center, and with age cap gets all cracked. But this year’s crop on lawns in Madison looks a bit different. I don’t know if it’s variation of the same, or different species suddenly took place of the other one. Also noticeable reddish hue on top of cap, especially in older specimen.
