Could be wetspot bacteria.
Lower that RH , fan more often, and do not over mist once pins have formed.

Are you certain it is not others throwing off butt loads of spores ?

also if your directly misting the growing mushrooms it can cause aborts

another thing, i beleive aborts can come from your casing getting too dry, especially when the shrooms are still very small which is when they'll usually abort...from what i've seen at least...before you mist can you tell is your casing is drying up? you should be able to tell from the color, with many casings they're lighter in color when dry so if they're dry every time you mist, maybe you should mist more...my friend's grandmother's brother's parakeet has some ksss which are supposedly bad about aborts, which wasn't his experience and he thinks its because he misted 3 or more times a day...the only mini-casings that seemed to abort much were the thin ones that dried out quicker
