Your mushroom looks like a Lepiota. There are a couple things you need to find out for an ID to species.

First, get a spore print. It should come out either white (good) or greenish (bad). It should be obvious if it's green.

Next, cut the entire mushroom in half vertically and watch what colors it changes to inside the cap and inside the stem (watch both, they could be different). You should see any chages that are important within a couple minutes.

Finally, although it looks like it in the photos, you should verify that the ring is actually thick, bandlike, and movable on the stem. It wouldn't hurt to verify that there is not a volva (sacklike structure around the base of the stem).

A view of the top of the cap would be nice, but it isn't really necessary for identification.

If the spore print is white and the inside of the cap doesn't bruise brown immediately when cut, then your mushroom is edible. At that point the bruising inside the stem will give us which species it is.

If the spore print is green then it is Chlorophyllum molybdites which is very poisonous. It sends a lot of people to the emergency room every year.

If the inside of the cap bruises brown immediately when cut then it is Lepiota brunnea which is also poisonous.

If it's one of the edible ones, then congratulations.

Happy mushrooming!
