I’m sorry now that I didn’t put a size reference in the picture. I am trying to recall…it was roughly 4 inches in height, the cap 3 to 3.5 inches in diameter and the stipe nearly an inch at its widest diameter. I found a Galerina on the same foray and it was 5 times smaller. http://mushroomobserver.org/27935?search_seq=960137. This may not be Gymnopilus – I don’t know – but if there is not enough to go on from these photos – perhaps the better thing to do is to remove the observation.

Galerinas can get big

Are your mushrooms bigger than these?


Most definitely not Gymnopilus.

Too large to be Galerina

Galerina is an LBM. This one is quite large and substantial – the stem is over 1.0 cm in diameter. The lack of scale in the picture is a problem.
