this looks like a Pholiota - brown-spored mushroom with attached gills and a ring on the stem....these occur on wood or wood debris....Agrocybe is a generic split from Pholiota. Many pholiotas have scaly caps but there are a few spring ones that are smooth-capped, like Ph. veris, and few agrocybes have a well-developed ring on the stem.
