These are large for Hygroporopsis aurantiaca, but otherwise a good match. They were growing from the roots of a long dead fallen tree in an area of the park populated by hardwoods. Before today I have only seen Hygrophoropsis aurantiaca growing from pine. These are also three or four times larger than the others I have encountered.

for latex? Bright color, forked gills, decurrent gills, general shape, and rolled rim all suggest Lactarius as a possibility. If there was none, H. aurantiacus looks more likely than Tricholoma or any close relative of that genus.
