To my eye the gills on the left side of the photo are clearly adnexed/notched and not free of the stipe. On the right side, the gills appear to be free, but given the other condition, I’d say this is likely the result of these gills (on the right) seceding.

Gills are still free.

and you will see clear attachment in the upper left. Other gills appear to have broken free of attachment… a not uncommon phenomenon.

In other words at first glance they appeared free but upon closer inspection they were still slightly attached. Somewhere between free and attached. It was like they went from being 2mm to just .5mm right before the stem

I agree with Alan that this looks like a Pluteus sp., but I can’t tell if the gills are free in that 2nd pic, it almost looks like the gills have pulled away from the stem in age.

The gills look attached to me…

Which is why I didn’t suggest Pluteus/Volvariella…

It was only 1" in diameter if that helps
