Gills are apparent. Glowing is never noted unless luminescence is suspected (i.e. the observer recognizes it as possibly in a genus with bioluminescent species, so they collect it and check in a dark room) , or the mushroom is found at night. O. nidiformis often has a darker center, some times bluish.

no mention of bioluminescence and not terribly pleurotioid. looks black toward the center as well. a tough call from a single and possibly aged specimen.

or smooth? I think I see the faintest remnants of gills near the margin.
