From the top this appeared to be a Bolete, but had gills.
Cap color varies from darker brown to a grayish brown. The largest cap size was about 2.5 inches.
These were numerous over the area I looked. I found one small button that was still connected by a thin partial veil. I saw other that were slightly more open and saw no partial veil remnants. On all I could see a dark ring on the stipe where the partial veil had been connected, but no remnants remained. The stipe was fleshy and hollowing at the center and also darker at the center. I couldn't really detect bruising. The stem was obviously orange compared to the cap, particularly on the mature sample.
The gills appeared to be stained dark. I've obtained a spore print and it looks dark brown. The gills are attached to the stem and run down the stem.
Although many were growing in and among rotting wood, all were rooted in the soil.
The caps had a tacky feel. They were not actually sticky or wet.
The cap and stem were soft and pliable.

Basidiomycota /bəˌsɪdi.ɵmaɪˈkoʊtə/ is one of two large phyla that, together with the Ascomycota, constitute the subkingdom Dikarya (often referred to as the "higher fungi") within the kingdom Fungi. More specifically the Basidiomycota include these groups: mushrooms, puffballs, stinkhorns, bracket fungi, other polypores, jelly fungi, boletes, chanterelles, earth stars, smuts, bunts, rusts, mirror yeasts, and the human pathogenic yeast Cryptococcus. Basically, Basidiomycota are filamentous fungi composed of hyphae (except for yeasts), and reproducing sexually via the formation...
