ID confirmation request

I think I've found Hypsizygus Tessulatus but I am unsure. I have searched for pictures on the net. I have seen two distinct mushrooms called H. Tessulatus. One looks like mine. The other looks like a type of oyster. Sorry I have no picture of the mushroom I found.

Habitat: Found on an unrecognizable decomposing hardwood stump
b. Gills are close and adnexed. White when young to rusty offwhite when older.
c. Cap was inch in diameter, stem was no more than 3/4 cm in diameter.
d. Stem was central, white, thick and fleshy. Crisp. It was equal all the way down. There was no part of the fruitbody below the surface of the wood. There was no remnant of a veil.
e. Cap was rusty brown with a coat of hairs that looked like spots from more than a foot away.
f. I sporeprinted it on white and I think it dropped a fine coat of very slightly off white spores.
g. No bruising.
h. Sorry I smoke I can't smell a thing.

I want to add that, in the past 7 days we have gotten the first measurable rain in the last two months. Also in the last seven days we have hit a high of 76*F and a low of 41*F. 76* was a week ago.

A little picture comparison of three pics I found on the net.
My mushroom looks similar to this, except with a darker cap.

NOT anything like this:

An obvious species you should check on is Armillaria tabescens. If there are tiny hairs on the cap standing up (check the center of the cap), then I would lean toward Armillaria.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!

The hairs were matted. And the gills aren't descending. I also do not recall any clusters of more than 2 or 3 small mushrooms. The specimen I found yesterday was destroyed. I'm going to keep an eye on the stump.
