And the cap texture doesn’t look off to me, but then the photo resolution isn’t especially high. You saw the specimen in person so you’d have more information than we do.

Did you get any kind of spore print?

Gills aren’t widely spaced or very thick, colors are too pale, cap surface texture seems wrong.

How about
