but both cap color and texture and bright yellow young gill color do match. stipe in luteofolius can be either stuffed or hollow, and the veil is ephemeral. I do see what appears to be partial veil remnants on a couple of those young caps. hard to tell for sure since the focus is a bit off.

Here’s a description:

Gymnopilus luteofolius (Peck) Singer
Lilloa 22: 560. 1951.

Synonym: Pholiota luteofolia

Pileus Cap 2.5-8 cm broad, convex, broadly convex to nearly plane in age, often with a low umbo; margin incurved becoming decurved; surface squamulose, the squamules often raised at the disc, appressed near the margin or merely fibrillose, senescing to nearly glabrous; color: dull vinaceous-purple, soon fading to vinaceous-brown to dull brownish-pink; flesh firm, whitish, vinaceous-purple adjacent the cuticle and gills, flesh thin at the margin, moderately thick at the disc; odor, indistinct to faintly farinaceous; taste, bitter. Lamellae Gills notched to uncinate, close, moderately broad, at first cream-buff with a pinkish tinge, becoming yellow ochraceous-buff, finally bright orange-brown from maturing spores. Stipe Stipe 2-8 cm long, 0.5-1.5 cm thick, more or less equal to slightly enlarged at the base, hollow to stuffed at maturity; surface appressed fibrillose-striate, colored like the cap with intervening pallid streaks, veil evanescent, fibrillose, cream-buff, leaving a fibrillose annular zone near the apex or fragments on the young cap; buff-colored mycelium at the base.

These mushrooms are hollow, veil lacking, and the pileus color remains consistent.

G. Flavidellus

I believe these mushrooms are closely related to g.flavidellus based on macroscopic features.
