Strange looking mushroom found in a dead tree

Please help us to identify this Mushroom.

Question: http://biology.stackexchange.com/...

“I’m trying to identify this mushroom my sister found at her campus’ lawn. It is brown, looks somewhat like a turtle or a brain and is growing inside of a dead tree trunk. Geographically the campus is in Haifa, Israel in case that helps. Any ideas?”

Of the gills are needed to identify these. They could be Gymnopilus or Pholiota, but it could be something entirely different. More photos of the underside of the cap will make this guessing game easier.
