Spore print in progress- spores appear to be pinkish-beige in color- possibly salmon-colored. Aesthetically, they're quite cool looking. The gills are not attached to the stem. I've been researching on mushroomexpert.com but not having much luck getting past agaricales since the keys end up with no good choices.
Observed while driving down the access road at LLELA between the outlet parking lot and the pavilion- they were on the left side of the road. I observed several of these fungi in a small area growing in the ground, not on wood.
Growing from a rotting log on the forest floor beside the track.

Also visible: Armillaria mellea (on the left), and Omphalotus olearius (group on top).
Large Pluteus in a group of four, the largest fruit body as photographed, 9.5 cm in diameter x 6.5 cm height. The grey-brown cap has a fibrous appearance with the fibres radiating out from the centre. The gill colour is tan-pink with a darker edge. The stipe is light grey-brown with fibres along the entire length, with a bulbous base. On very rotten large fallen log in remnant mature coastal broadleaf forest.
No photo. Growing on black walnut log. Gills pinkish and well-eaten by gastropods, cap much less so. Color of cap greatly resembles the color of an adult deer's coat. Keyed in the field using Roody 2003 (p. 175).

The Pluteaceae are a family of small to medium-sized mushrooms which have free gill attachment and pink spores. Members of Pluteaceae can be mistaken for members of Entolomataceae, but can be distinguished by their angled spores and attached gills. The four genera in the Pluteaceae include the widely distributed Volvariella and Pluteus, the rare Chamaeota, and Volvopluteus, newly described in 2011 as a result of molecular analysis.
