a number of wood-rotting pleurotoids do this (most notably Pleurotus)

with John. I think it’s just baby Panellus stipticus

If I had to guess I would consider just baby Panellus stipticus growing on the larger one, other choices would include things like Claudopus parasiticus or Entoloma pseudoparasiticum but I can think of other choices.

from the PNWKC Squamanita key:

Several gilled mushrooms are parasitic on other mushrooms(Collybia, Asterophora, Psathyrella epimyces, and Volvariella surrecta, to name some in the Pacific Northwest).
