Haha, certainly looks that way -- it was the slugs, I imagine, who took the big bite out of it however.

This certainly seems like it's a Lepiota, but Lepiota can be very hard to identify to species. Judging from the size (Lepiota Lilacea tends to be smaller than this), though, and color of the stem (Lepiota Lilacea has a pinkish to purplish stem with a dark underside), I don't think this is Lepiota Lilacea. I think the recently reclassified Leucoagaricus americanus (it used to be Lepiota Americana) is a more likely candidate.

I love these. I found some recently but was unable to get a decent photo.

Definitely some kind of bolete: possibly Lilac-brown Bolete (Tylopilus eximius).

Spring Agrocybe (Agrocybe praceox) fruits in April, is widely distributed in North America and has a dark brown spore print. Hard Agrocybe (Agrocybe dura) typically doesn't fruit until May, but is more likely to develop a cracked cap.
