Could be P. cupressina.

I collected the same thing in the same area in Nov 2010. Although more or less white when collected and photographed, the hymenium of the dried fruitbodies is pale peachy or cantaloupe-orange. MykoWeb states that the typical orange color can be paler when protected from light. Perhaps this is an extreme example of that? The microscopic features and habitat do fit P. cupressina.

spores are a match for Pithya…

round, thick-walled, inamyloid, granular contents, 8/ascus, 10-11 microns in diameter.
