Wood, yes

but usually very well decayed wood. In my experience C. Chrysophylla is more fuscous-brown on the cap and usually umbilicate, but these are young specimens so I wouldn’t rule it out.

They appear terrestrial….

But there could be wood down there. I’m going to go inspect further tomorrow.

Thanks guys!

or on wood?

cap doesn’t appear to be matted fibrillose, a characteristic of C. chrysophylla.
