The yellow/orange and pinkish/reddish coloring of the lamellae and Pileus. These have no sign of a veil at all. at first I thought they were Gymnopilus penetrans until I noticed the discolored spots.

do you see between your collection and G. braendlei, or the description for G. pulchrifolius?

Yes, I do see a lot a similarities between that description and these Gymnopilus. I also see similarities with Gymnopilus braendlei sans the veil. I really have no clue what species these are, and I didn’t get much input from the shroomery besides from bloodworm. They had what appeared to be some signs of Psilocybin oxidation which got my attention. They pins were sort of a reddish orange color. The mycelium was very root-like.

Do you think that these mushrooms match the mushrooms in the description?
