Recognized by sight: In the first photo, portions of the chocolate gills are present. The fibrilose scales on the cap, annulus, growth on compost: all seem to point to Agaricus at the least. I’m not confident enough to confirm A. subrufescens, but that certainly is possible. I’d expect an enlarged bulb to be somewhat visible, though.

Did this mushroom have a foul odor, sort of like road tar?
