Yes, www.mushroomobserver.org/148989, looks very similar but again is hard to tell if the gills are free or not.

There are several species of Pluteus with bright red/orange colors but without microscopical data it is hard to get a sense which species these collections may belong to.

if you send some specimens over I would take a look

I didn’t think of that at first, but the striations around the cap and the smooth stipe (without chevrons) definitely looks more like Pluteus now.

The overall resemblance is way more similar than I’d guessed before; compare to:

this really looks like a Pluteus species, the gills, the stipe, the growth form
