But this obs. was associated with conifers (Douglas-fir). That association by itself seems to be closer to Gymnopilus.

The only other obs. identified as Gymnopilus terrestris in MO is from CA, with much darker orange-ish gills, but also much older.

Gymnopus, not Gymnopilus

that this specimen was found in the open, but within 30 feet of 60-foot-tall Douglas-fir, so well within their root zone.
