I’ve seen Armillaria tabescens around my place and this mushroom was several orders of magnitude larger. I don’t believe it’s Armillaria tabescens.

very dense stalks and caps

The specimen had very dense stalks and caps. I cross sectioned one and it was almost woody. From the pictures I looked at Armillaria Staude, I don’t believe it’s a fit.
