Found in Manchester - agaricus?

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Dear all,

I'm a novice mycologist trying to learn. I found these in Manchester UK - no yellow staining, mushroomy smell. I was thinking Agaricus Arvensis, urinascens or bresadolanus. Please let me know what you think!
Edit: forgot the pics!!

Agaricus is actually a tricky genus, and really needs microscopy and chemical tests. Even then, I understand species are likely to be redefined soon.
