This button was growing very close to the observation in question. That could mean everything or nothing, I know.

…taking into consideration it rained hard the night before the observation, weathering the already aging mushroom. May be A. virosa. Thoughts? I’ll key it out here in a comment soon.

This button was growing very close to the observation in question. That could mean nothing at all, I know, but possibly helpful with identification.

Trees in the yard (near the cabin in northern Minnesota) are mainly coniferous.

This picture was taken when I knew practically nothing about Mycology unfortunately. You can see the veil, however, quite clearly in pics 2 and 3. The base appears to be club shaped (pic 3).

The splintered / shaggy look of the stipe is an interesting feature.
