Some kind of bug with the site.

Yes, could be another Gymnopus

I don’t think I have seen such strinkingly narrow and dense gills in dryophilus or ocior. It would have been nice to see more of it – gill attachment, the whole stipe, actual size(?), if it had any particular taste or smell etc.

Could be another Gymnopus species

The deep chestnut hues of the cap (instead of the yellowish-buff-honey palette typical for G. dryophilus) make me think of a species which we’ve identified as Gymnopus ocior here. Growth in somewhat larger, clustered groups is also more typical for G. ocior than it is for G. dryophilus.
There are other similar Gymnopus species but G. ocior is the first that comes to mind.
