I guess it could be Gymnopilus; it was growing on the ground (buried wood always a possibility). If so, I would expect the color of the stem to more closely match the cap and gills. The size of the cap was about 4" – so that implies G. junious. This was solitary, not clustered. The stem does not appear woody or knarled.
