Could be a lot of things. With mushrooms you should try to take shots of the top and bottom of the cap, the stem, and the base of the stem. Notes on smell and feel or also helpful. Even with all that they can still be tricky to identify!

Making a spore print is also very helpful.

How do you do that?

Clip the cap and place it on a piece of paper in a place without a draft for a couple hours, like a box or a cabinet. It's often good to have paper that's black and white so you can see light and dark spores.

Aluminium foil works well as a back ground two. as does a glass or small box over the cap to exclud draths. If you find that no spore print develops over a few hours then try over night some fungi can be slow to drop spores.
