Doug, I thought Bolbitius too, however when I look more closely at the gill colour in the enlarged photo, they look much more pink than rusty.

Yes, free, but very dry.

Yes there are free gills, but it also very dry. With many small thin guys like this when they dry out the gills will pull away form the stipe, when they get so dry like this, I’m never sure about the free gills at that point.

I see distinctly free gills in the second photo, lower right specimen

These look more to be Bolbitius than Pluteus.
