I agree! You explained it to me perfectly and, after more observation, I (correctly, I hope) see the similitude.

Thanks, Gully!

Tubaria furfuracea looks likely.

I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "the white irregular lines over the edge of the dome", but I have two ideas of what you could be describing. Firstly, the radial lines (striations) around the cap margin which echo the gills beneath, but these are clearly present in your photograph so I take it you're not referring to them.

So that leaves my second possibility - the concentric ring around the the edge of the cap visible on some specimens. This would be remnants of a the mushroom's veil which can easily be washed off by rain and your mushroom may well have once had.
