you are so confident about sapineus? From these photos only?
There’s a handful of other species growing on wood. G. penetrans is probably the most common one, but there’s also a tiny Peck-species named bellulus with a bright orange rusty cap and equally bright, deep yellow gills and rusty yellow stem. This could actually be it, but microscopy is needed (small spores).
