These were small, the caps on the larger specimens were only 2.5-3 inches across.

They stood about 3-4 inches tall.

Tricholomopsis fits.

Good call!

Tricholomopsis would account for the bitter flavour!

I noticed the granular or fibrillose pileus, it reminds me of Armillaria actually…
How big were these?
I’m also a little bit confused by the reportedly bitter flavour.

spore color…

the spore color is white.

these did have small fibers on the cap, if that helps.

As bitter on wood…

Seems like there are perhaps Gymnopilus (not Gymnopus…), did you notice the spore color here?

Gymnopilus, I suppose…
