They don't look like Gymnopilus to me. Gyms have attached gills too, btw.

Is this all one species?

*edit: "attached" to the stem... you wrote "free gills," unless that was the one you picked because it sounded good.

The first two pictures are of damaged ones. The small one is "halved" and the larger one has some sort of decay and appears more translucent.

As far as free gills, I thought that meant that it wasn't the spongey looking "gills" I've seen. I'll be post pics from the under side a little bit later on. They look just like these spectabilis

Gills look like this:

What I'm more concerned with is, "Are there any that look like gymnopilus spectabilis that could be potentially lethal (or at the very least, have some pretty serious nauseating mycotoxins?)?

No, "free" in this case means not attached to the stem.  This means that you should be able to remove the stem without ripping the gills off with it.  Gymnopilus have attached gills.

Those pics aren't a G. spectabilis listing.  They are a G. sapineus listing -- said to be active by some sources.

Without some good macro shots, we just can't ID definitively.

I can give you the long lecture or I can just say: don't eat un-ID'ed mushrooms.  A spore print would help in this case.

Galerina/Pholiota/some species of Armillaria imo and alot others, those are most common Galerina are very poisonous.

I'm taking the print right now, what color am I looking for? The gills ARE connected to the stem. I didn't realize that's what that meant, sorry.

EXACT same coloration. The images leave them looking a lot lighter than they are (in real life they're more clearly yellow).

your looking for a rusty orange spore print. Although some look-alikes have same color print, try posting a picture of the print. I had to do microscopy on my last Gymnopilus luteus find, to prove that it was not Pholiota sp.

I was curious about that, the Pholiota I mean... I did some googling and found recipes for them...with other people saying they're poisonous. DO gyms have poisonous look a likes? I checked out out some of the pholiota pics and don't really seem to have a match on them. I'm wondering about local resources (USM and what not) and maybe getting a local mycologist to ID.

Is there any chance of hooking up with fellow Hunters locally for IDing or is that just...against policy?

Look at pics in my gallery and see how exactly close your finds match up to mine

If there is any questions whatsoever - you should just keep on Hunting and toss yours!!

Don't get too worked up about your find here - remember your spot and spring and fall bring gym flushes from the same spots year after year

Your pics aren't good enough to say alone
If all of those pics are "supposed laughers" - you gota keep hunting

Gyms taste EXTREMELY BITTER - have a PERSISTANTLY HIGH ANNULUS - and good pins will bruise blue-green

Lots of lookalikes can have same or similar spore color
Physical features and Exact locations( like what kind of wood ) help LOTS

I have never seen someone more desperate to magically turn an inactive shroom into an active one.
