More information would be helpful please!

I think you are probably correct in your ID but one photo view and no comments about size or habitat mean I can't be sure. This species is easily confused with Panthercap - A. pantherina (poisonous) which has a distinct rim around the stem base. The Blusher - A. rubescens, which is usually larger, is another possibility.
