Looks a lot like Crepidotus applanatus, but it could easily not be. Only looks like the gills are just starting to be brown, but you might want to check spore color. In a scope the spores should be globose with obvious spines. But even with that, there is a kinda smooth continuum of features that various authors have broken up from 1 to 5 or 6 species or variations.
