could it be something like Gymnopus luxurians? it rather looks like the old specimens that discolor reddish on the gills. I know it is rare up in Seattle, probably recently introduced? do you get it in Cali?

not sure

Any idea what color the spores are. I do not believe that Armillaria tabescens has been found in California. I would bet on a brown spore print and something like Agrocybe

Maybe Ringless Honey Mushroom

Armillaria tabescens, if growing from the chipped material shown. Photos appear to show caespitose clusters, somewhat dessicated.
