It is something close to L. roseiceps (still hasn’t been changed from a lepiota yet but it is a leucoagaricus)! Murrill published several species in the rubrotincta group which have been scarcely look at since. This is one of them and probably is roseiceps or subrepandus. Molecular results are pending analysis but with nothing to compare it to at this point it will merely be a point of interest.
