I did not get very in depth on this ID, so consider this a working name. This species grows from wood, has a brown-orange cap, no ring on the stem, and stains vinaceous.
Gymnopilus penetrans and G. sapineus have yellow tones to the cap. G. luteofolius has reddish purple scales on cap. Gymnopilus luteus is larger and has yellow tones to the cap,a s well as a ring on the upper stalk. Gymnopilus spectabilis (Gymnopilus junonius) is larger, and has a slightly scaly cap.
