Recognized by sight: The gills are attached, that is hard to refute. I don’t see evidence of pink spores. The margin on the top photo looks like it might have a dusting of white spores. The gills are sinuate in a way the reminds me of M. rodmani. But, I guess it could also be an Entoloma. I would like that, because this would be a Tricholomatiod (Noordeloos) form, right? I don’t recall seeing that before.

M. rodmani occurs predominately in the spring here (both NE I realize) too, but it is not unusual to see it throughout the summer in lesser numbers. It is rare in the fall, and of course it would normally be bigger that this one is, and the cap would be more conspicuously striate. I have heard of the Tricholoma type Entoloma, but I don’t think I have found it. So this is good. Entoloma it is.

is one of the first mushrooms to show in the Spring and is everywhere you look but I’ve not found it in the Fall. To me this looks more like the Tricholoma type of Entoloma that we find in the Fall such as E. lividoalbum and E. sinuatum both of which have unpleasant odors and taste.
