You didn't get the base of the stem, so that makes it a bit tougher than it might otherwise be.

The overall stature of that mushroom suggests a Tricholoma. Unfortunately, there are a bunch of Tricholomas that look basically like that.

A wild guess as to species might be Tricholoma sejunctum, which should not be eaten.

Some Tricholomas are edible (some are *really* good), some are poisonous (*really* poisonous), none are active.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!
