Recognized by sight: Gills look a bit light for E. abortivum. But I think this is on account of lighting/camera setting.

show what appears to be the aborted version of Armillaria fruit bodies that typically accompany E. abortivum fruitings (behind the log). Although decurrent gills are not generally associated with entoloma types, E. abortivum often has decurrent gills. An E. abortivum spore print taken on a white background will be salmon/pink.
