So you found it growing in a hole, removed it from the hole, but the mushroom had other ideas and dove back into the hole, not to be collected?

Uh huh. Likely story.

Wait a… This information is irrelevant to the identification!

A second after I took the second picture, the mushroom fell into a hole, never to be seen again. When I found it, it was growing in a hole.

Another possibility is Lichenomphalia, though I could easily see this being Arrhenia. Not much in the way of distinguishing characteristics here.. Not as far as I can tell, any way. The colour is rather indistinct.

Cool find, either way!
