When you 3 say 'Chlorophyllum' is that specific species (only one in my Phillips) or does it include the macrolepiota and other lepiota? I'd rather assumed it could be a macrolepiota, quite similar to Phillips pic of m. konradii (and right time and habitat) but apparently that isn't common.

This group started out as

This group started out as Lepiota moved to Macroleptiota and now to Chlorophyllum. C brunneum was Lepiota rhacodes var. hortensis and also Lepiota bohemica. Lepiota olivieri is now C olivieri and the common or garden C rachodes has been through Lepiota and Macrolepiota rhacodes.
Lepiota konradii moved to Macrolepiota but as yet has not moved as far as Chlorophyllum.
All I can say is it is one of that group. Someone else might feel confident enough to give it a species name
