The staining is unusual for a Pleurotus in my experience. The descending gills on the stipe and the subdividing gills near the cap edge seem more Hohenbuehelia-like.

If Pleurotus, I’d be concerned about spore-load in a confined space. It’s possible for the spores of Pleurotus to grow in/on your lungs, causing respiratory problems.

and the conditions therein. This is an unusual time of the year for Hohenbuehelia to fruit. Usually it appears here in Oregon in Spring or early Summer.
