Armillaria sp. almost certainly (though the gills look rather dark, I suspect it is just because they are waterlogged), though we would need to see the stipe to see if it has a ring or not before calling it A. tabescens. The scales on the pileus are too generalized a feature within the genus to help in identifying it to species.

trees or woody shrubs nearby?
