Is this Armillaria tabascens?

Found clusters growing over old oak roots in northern North Dakota. White spore print, ringless, dry at time observed. White stems and gills turning brown to gray with age. Cap size up to 2 inches. Update: placed a drop of water on cap and did new spore prints. Prints are brown.

These are not Desarmillaria (new genus for "Ringless Honey Mushroom"). The gills are wrong... too dark and not decurrent (ie. not running down the stems).  White spore print is a surprise. There look like a brown-spored species like maybe Pholiota or Hypoholoma. I don't know a white-spored mushroom that looks like these.
