very likely in the cervinus-petasatus group

the aspect of the pileus is not typical for the white variants of P. cervinus and related taxa.

P. petasatus is a possibility but unfortunately without molecular data is very difficult to give the correct name to white specimens in this group, almost every single normally pigmented taxon has white variants and on top of that taxa with (almost) exclusively white basidiocarps also exists

Color not entirely accurate

Gills of young mushroom definitely pink — but the cap is white & slightly scaly. You may be right.
