Hesler mentions in his monograph on North American Species of Gymnopilus that Gymnopilus viridans will become green-spotted where handled, but your specimens look like G. luteofolius. Stamets talks about G. luteofolius becoming green in Psilocybin Mushrooms of the World, MykoWeb mentions it and the PNKC key for Gymnopilus seems to key right to it!

I should also mention that both the cap and stem bruise a blue-green color where damaged.

The mushroom has a very mild flavor, definitely not bitter.

Any help ID’ing to species would be appreciated.
