Unknown Mushroom

On the 26th of May I found a large honey coloured mushroom growing in wood chip and bark mulch on Quay Parade Road, by Sainsbury's. (SS 66030 93108).

It was in considerable numbers and fruiting in many stages of maturation.  It completely puzzled me as I found it impossible to work out the family it belongs too. I believe it to be an Agrocybe, specifically Agrocybe putaminum, which is not indigenous.

Since then the weather has been either dry or very wet and this fungi has continuously fruited for the last month..Another wood chip fungi that is fruiting in the same location is Psilocybe cyanascens.
