Could it be Agaricus arvensis?

Zdravo Milanjov,

No, I don't think this can be any Agaricus because of the pale gill colour.

I think that it could be Volvopluteus (=Volvariella) gloiocephala because of the habitat, size and pinkish, free gills. This species develops from a sac-like volva and it would be nice to see that to confirm the ID.

Cheers,
Nick

Zdravo Nick and thanks! Very helpful, as always!

That seems to be a very good match. Don't recall seeing the volva, but I didn't check that at all. Will know better next time.

Cheers,

Milan
