Thanks TheMiesMeister! You wouldn't happen to know what there are would you?

Great catch, LuckyLogan! This is definately a Leucoagaricus, it could be either L. rubrotinctus or L. purpureorimosus (or another species which I don't know). Leucoagaricus mostly looks like an Agaricus or a (Macro)Lepiota species, but with white gills and sporeprint. Molecular studies have shown that Leucoagaricus is closely related to Lepiota.
