from underneath appears to show gills with (at least partially) “minutely cottony-white edges” as is described in Audubon. Bessette’s Mushrooms of NE NA says “edges finely fringed or powdery.” Mushroom Expert makes no mention of ornamentation on the gill edges.
The clincher for IDing bleeding Mycena types is the dark red juice that one sees on their fingers when handling a broken stipe. But the compact vivid stain seen on the gills in first pic look like the result of local saturation.
Nice story told in pictures, Christine.
