Sorry. Looks pretty dry.

The distortion of the gills into that wavy can be a response to very dry conditions. I have seen it occasionally on Russulas locally during droughts. The rosey coloration on the stipe could indicate a species, but would have needed to break the stipe in half to be sure of Genus.
