I’m sorry the image isn’t clear enough, it is actually a small piece of clay.
Apart from the adnexed gill attachment it does resemble a Pluteus species in macroscopic form but a quick look at the spores clearly shows the typical angled spores of an Entoloma species, I may add some microscopy to this observation soon!

would suggest Pluteus, but the gills are clearly adnexed rather than free, which is consistent with Entoloma.

really looks like it is growing from a piece of wood.
