I find lots of this type mushroom undr White Pine on my property every fall. The gills start out white and turn pinkish as they age. The basal mycelium is white. I’ve been calling this type Laccaria laccata.

My thoughts exactly

I was going to guess Laccaria due to the spores, but the white gills threw me off.
I’m not as knowledgeable as a lot of you folks, so when I’m stumped I just post as generic Agricales and let the group take it from there.
