Mystery Mushroom E, suspected Fawn Mushroom, pic 2 of 3, pinkish gills


Large caps 4" wide, fleshy and kinda floppy, fragile when handled, maybe getting a little old. Stalk is white with vertical fibration, streaked pinkish brown from spores, 2.5" long, a little bulbous at base, kinda tapering in the middle. Salmon spores, gills fleshy and pinkish. Gills are free and big. Cap is grayish brown, darker in center with slight knob (seeprevious photo). I thought at first this was Entoloma but now I'm thinking it's a Pluteus cervinus, but can the cap be this light of a color???
