I don’t think Pluteus

The stipe and habitat are promising, but the gills look really white; might be ok, but not the pink that would make me think “Oh yeah Pluteus”. The cap surface looks distinctly non-Pluteus.

Looking forward to some decent specimen shots Twizzler!

velvety cap and simply a reminding of certain European species, also the gills and the stipe remind of Pluteus and the growing on wood.

What …

… has you thinking Pluteus here? (I will check these again in a couple of days, see if they’ve expanded, maybe get mature gill color and attachment.)
