Notes: Growing right at the base of a madrone (Arbutus menziesii). At first I thought it was a Gymnopilus until I saw the gills.

Yeah that looks like a much better fit, with the yellowish stem. Arora in mushrooms demystified says it grows with Madrones. Growth habit is a little curious with the clustered growth.
