Thank you for the suggested ID. The stump on which the mushroom is growing could be a conifer stump. The woodland had been planted in conifers (white and red pine) many decades ago. It was logged in the early 2000’s. A few standing white pines persist in the woodland.

Reminds me of T. atrotomentosa
