Used references: Arora, Mushrooms Demystified. The gills are still young, I think, but veil remnants on pileus edge, and glandules on stipe are suggestive. This looks greenish to my eye, and may have free gills.

macroscopically, without the colour of the lamellae – this looks very much like Lepiota.
But the dark spores, the shape of the spores – those really make this a big puzzle.
Cystoagaricus is one possibility, and Micropsalliota another.
