does give reason to doubt the abortivum proposal. The decurrent gill attachment is something I don’t see with other large fleshy entolomas.

No white globs anywhere..

I guess they don’t always fruit at the same time. I was trying to name it anything but Entoloma since it didn’t have any aborts. But, now I think you are right. Thanks.
