on the cap also points towards Entoloma. Tricky to suggest a species, though.

Can’t rule it out.

The squat, flattish, irregularly-lobed, robust structure fits my Tricholoma gestalt more than my Entoloma gestalt (slenderer, less robust, more likely to have a peaked cap) but the gill color, as you point out, fits Entoloma better than it does Tricholoma.

look pink. Are you sure it’s not Entoloma?
