Looks not like destroying angel. Could be Volvariella spec. with pink-coloured spore-print. The spore-print of destroying angel is white! Can you test this?

might be Volvopluteus gloiocephalus, no veil to recognize, moisty cap, club shaped stipe...

Most probably volvariella gloiocephala. In which Country was this Fungus found??

The country is United States! But there are growing some other species of the genus Volvopluteus. So the name V. gloiocephalus is doubtfull !
