Lepiota felina, or L. lilacea (less likely)

Most likely Lepiota felina – has a pileus covering made up of long upright elements.
Lepiota lilacea (less likely, more urban in occurrence) – has a pileus covering made up of tightly packed upright clavate elements, giving the surface of the patches a smooth look.
