These photos were taken before I became rigorous about my fungi observations. I just found them looking through old backpacking photos. Trudell & Ammirati also mention Agaricus moelleri as another smooth-stiped fibrillose-capped Agaricus, although they also mention that name may be taxonomically problematic.

Probably one of the yellow staining taxa

Did you check odor or staining reactions when cut/rubbed?
Also, if you have KOH try that.
