Fawn mushroom, Pleuteus cervinus??

Description:

Grayish/brownish cap, white stem speckled with gray/brown flecks, cap a little viscid, coming out of stump, white gills, very pretty. The bigger one (not pictured) was quite big.

Habitat:

Coming out of a stump in Prospect Park. This particular stump has supported 4 different spp of mushrooms since April. So cool! Near the arch near Audubon Boathouse.

Notes:

I think it's a fawn mushroom.
