I realize the Pluteus hypothesis should be easy to propose/reject. Just wanted to make certain. The growth habit and gestalt seemed Pluteus like to me… and I could not really see the gill attachment; although there do appear to be decurrent teeth running down the stipe apex. Maybe Tricholomopsis?

seems clear enough to me: adnate to slightly decurrent. (Free would have made this a no-brainer Pluteus. Instead I don’t know what the hell it is.)

Can you describe
