Gills sort of dingy yellowish to grayish

I can’t find my other observations at the moment — there’s a good photo of the gills on one of them… of course the other observations may be different species. I’ve been calling these Hypholoma in my notes for whatever that’s worth because of the gill color, stature, habitat, etc. — they look an awful lot like H. fasciulare to me.

Stipe! Gills!

We need to see the gills!! Spore colour and the gills are usually orange or rust coloured for Gymnopilus, but Hypholoma will have brown or almost black gills at maturity.

Furthermore, the stipe colour usually matches the cap colour (at least some what) with Gymnopilus. The stipe will tend to be orange or yellow.
Species such as H. fasciculare will too, usually have a yellow or green stipe. Though H. capnoides and other species of Hypholoma tend to have a paler stipe compared to the cap.

Lastly, the way the cap has a sort of burnt look to it due to drying is also characteristic of Hypholoma in my experience.
