I took more pictures and made more observations. I am convinced this is A. Molieri.

Not sure about Agaricus moelleri

Could be, but I am not convinced yet that these are Agaricus moelleri. The stems did not yellow (at all) after cutting through them nor did the caps or stems bruise yellow. They are also very firm and sturdy, not easily bruised, crushed or broken. The stems are brighter white that Xerox paper, almost glowing and a bit translucent. The caps were tightly closed. I took a few samples which should be open tonight and I will do a few more observations, then post my conclusions. Any other tests or possible confounds you can think of would be appreciated.
