Lepiota species

Most likely a Lepiota, because of the white gills (which i assume are free), the bands of material on the stipe.
The pale pink cap that is not scaly (plus the stipe) point to Lepiota subincarnata and allies – the group of species with ellipsoid spores, a trichodermal pileus covering (upright long cells), that lack basal short clavate cells, and amanitins (as in Amanita virosa, bisporigera, phalloides and others).
