These look very good for A. nabsnona – swampy alder habitat, and fairly bare (lacking dramatic scales or even many hairs) and rather orange and deeply striate cap match what seems to be the common concept for this species on the PNW Coast right now.

it might be A. mellea, since it had a pretty smooth cap and was next to a dead alder, although I didn’t see many with much of an annulus once they were expanded

Very delicate for Armillaria

I don’t doubt your assessment; any guess on species name?
