I am stumped by the Clitocybe proposal. This specimen was very yellow—cap, gills and stem—not a color that is usual for Clitocybe I think. The woods were dark and it was cloudy so they appear washed out and cream colored. The last photo I just uploaded shows the color a little better. Also, I think of Clitocybe as having depressed or funnel shaped caps frequently and decurrent or adnate gills. There were perhaps 30 fruit bodies on the log and all had convex caps with notched gills. Finally I know that a few Clitocybe grow on wood but most are terrestrial I think.

Just trying to understand but if history is a guide then this is Clitocybe because you are rarely wrong on your proposals :)

Thanks, Terri
