found under tan-oak, growing in the surface of the soil under leaf duff, orange grainy looking insides, smelled like a strong cheddar.

until I saw the last added pictures, those made it much easier for me to guess :-)
After looking at photos 75252, 75249 and 75250, I have withdrawn my identification of Gymnomyces in favor of Irene’s identification of Macowanites. The above photos clearly show a central stipe, which is not present in Gymnomyces. Thus the locules are actually distorted gills of the Russula-relative Macowanites. My apologies to those who thought I knew what I was talking about, and congratulations to Irene Anderson for her astute observation.
your right, more like a sponge than grainy. second specimen found under madrone. looks like a secotioid fungi.
