My first thought was Clitocybe nebularis. The color is ambiguous, looks bluish against black background. We also can’t see the substrate. The gill attachment points away from Hypsizygus ulmarius.

Anyone else

Have any opinions?

These “veil remnants”

might just be th cap cuticle separating. Also I have never seen Pleurotus dryinus with a scaly cap. It often is frosted with fine powder at first and becomes yellowish in age. I know it pretty well. On the other hand I was not comfortable calling it H. ulmarius, a species I have seen only a couple times.
