would fit darker gills!
Thank you!
I have seen Agrocybe before, and usually spring! They often get very ugly cap cracks with age.
My obs. 316259 seems a good fit https://mushroomobserver.org/316259

Melanoleuca seems a nice fit

Thanks Dave!
I never think of that Genus.
It’s a beige/offwhite gill . . . but I didn’t do the spore print. I assume it’s close to white. looks like that assumption was silly

Is this white-spored?

Gills look a little darkened in the one photo. But this may just be a shadow. Stipe has some material stuck to it, but perhaps just debris and not remains of a veil.

Maybe Melanoleuca? M. cognata looks like a possibility http://www.mushroomexpert.com/melanoleuca_cognata.html
