The ring and cap strongly suggest that it belongs to the toxic section in Agaricus. Many people can detect a creosote-like odor in these mushrooms. Inside the base of the stem you might see a color change to yellow.

More than one species looks a lot like this. My best guess is A. buckmacadooi.

Any idea what type of Agaricus? It is not augustus due to it’s lack of smell.
