Under mixed hardwood forests, mostly oak and beech.
Adding some micro-details:
The first micro-shot is of the cap surface at 400x in KOH. The cap surface is pretty much a cutis.
The second micro-shot is of the gill edge at 400x in KOH. The cheilocystidia here are lageniform, and thin-walled. No pleurocystidia were obs in this one (I looked… maybe some escaped me?).
The third micro-shot is of spores from the gill at 1000x in KOH. The spores are ellipsoid to sub-globose, smooth, without a germ pore. The apr. size is 7-6 × 5 um.
If I put this together, including the pale colors, and the floccose hyphae on the cap, this seems to be Pluteus exiguus. Not sure why it needs to two u’s…
