Recognized by sight: Looks way too big for a Galerina. Strikes me as some sort of Pholiota given that it’s growing on wood and has brown spores. Spores don’t look quite bright enough for Gymnopilus. It would be good to know if the cap was at all sticky.

The caps were not sticky, at most tacky due to a recent rain. There were also several mature mushrooms that were much larger growing from the same tie that were bright orange in color but I didn’t get a photo of those.

just googling the spore color. Yes Noah that would be amiss. Now give my polypores a whirl if you would please.

Want to go with the classic “train wrecker” neolentinus lepideus, as there are some squamules on the top… but something seems amiss.
