These look to be fairly mature specimens.

So if they are a type of Hypholoma, I’d expect to see some gray/purple on the gills.

But how does one completely rule out “Gymnopilus”? A few of these species can grow terrestrially.

Interesting suggestion

Based on the photo and my limited knowledge, I would have to agree.
