Could y'all please give me a hand with identifying these. Genus looks like Gymnopilus, but I'm still pretty new at this. Possibly an active species (like G. luteoviridis or G. luteus) or maybe G. junonius? Thanks in advance!


P.S. I'm new to the forum and wasn't able to post in a more appropriate location. Please let me know if there's a better location to post.


Time: December 18th
Location: SE United States
Habitat: Growing on mulch and leaf matter, away from trees (likely saprotrophic)

Cap: Some scaling visible. Pellicle (separable and gelatinous) is viscous when wet. Not apparently hygrophanous.

Gills: Close, attachment appears adnexed.

Stipe: Sturdy and fibrous, slightly hollow in center.

Ring: Not visible, but some veil remnants still visible just below gills
Odor: Mushroom, earthy. 

Bruising: Slight greenish bruising near base of stipe and cap. Stipe bruising near base of stipe quickly turns dark green, brown, or gray. Gills bruise rust color.

Spore print: rusty brown, orange
