Maybe early stage blushing for a rubescens group taxon.

The cap margin is not striate, the partial veil is present, the short gills are not squarely cut off. These characters don’t define the Validae, but the characters are shared by the Validae. I’ll make a guess that the spores will be amyloid and that the pink regions will intensify and darken over time toward a more typical rubescent staining.

Very best,
