This looks like

One of the Parasols. Do you have a photo of the stem? That would help with the identification.

According to my book -

Shaggy Parasol has a stem that is "whitish tinged dirty pinkish-brown, bruising red-brown when fresh".
Parasol has one "white, with grey-brown felty covering which splits into snake-like markings as the stem expands".
There are other related species, but these are the most likely.
