I added a photo that shows the gill structure better. These were one of the first pictures I ever took of a mushroom, so sorry about the quality. Growing on same decomposing wood. The light is off, so sorry, but you can still see gill structure.

Flammulaster looks like a good possibility…

but a view of the underside of the cap would be useful. Flammulaster usually features triangular pieces of partial veil lining the cap margin, and sometimes this is best seen by viewing the cap from beneath. In general, views from different perspectives are useful… gill attachment, stipe base, gill color, gill separation are some of the features that help to support an ID.

Love the puppy paws=) My dog loves to hunt mushrooms
