No one seems to have taken notice of melleipes, since Murrill described it in the North American Flora. There is actually nothing in the description that speaks against Pluteus romellii. It’s possibly a minor form (almost globose spores and lacking cystidia). Type specimen and other collections can be seen virtually in C. V. Starr Virtual Herbarium at NYBG, and I’d bet that the gills are yellowing with age too.
Here’s one of the collections:

I think I’ll follow Michael Kuo’s advice in this case and vote for romellii (=lutescens)…

Not my opinion …

The key of KUO leads to Pluteus romellii (“flavescens” in his key), because you have to go with “cap margin lined” in pair 34/34*. It’s well visible in the first foto.
Besides the key of KUO, the picture looks exactly typical and in my eyes unmistakeably like P. romellii

If the stipe is yellow it keys out well in Kuo’s key.

about the size of a beer bottle cap. I’ll get a spore shot up in a bit.

Pluteus melleipes? Cinnamon cap, yellow stem, white gills – but how small is it..?
