M. procera, except for the smooth stalk. Also looks like the right environment.

the Chlorophyllum suggestion due to the rejection. Damon, I commend your princess bride reference though.

because the user destroyed it after it was rejected.
But also, it was never proposed as C. molybdites, just the genus was proposed, and it is a genus which includes non-toxic (and indeed good edible) members out here in the west, so I missed the implications of danger there.

Wait, what…

I only looked at the cap photo, not the tall stiped ones… yes it is Macrolepiota – Else
can you tell us a bit more about differences between these genera? Is it just a matter of the stipe being smooth vs. decorated (scaly/fibrous/hairy/tomentose)?
