Correct me if im wrong, but few mushrooms other than gyms have orange spore prints. But wait for someone like Mr.Mushrooms or Toxicman to confirm this.

The are some poisonous mushrooms from the same family Cortinariaceae that have similarly colored rusty brown spores.
Cortinarius & Inocybe never grow directly from wood.
Galerinas grow on wood but they're small sized mushrooms so it would be hard to mistake them for gyms.
Be careful anyway. All this 3 genuses contain deadly poisonous species!

There are some similar looking mushrooms. Be sure you get a spore print to verify the orangish color. The poisonous species have rusty colored spore prints.

The things you want to verify are: overall yellow-orangish color (entire mushroom), growing on wood (usually in clusters), persistent ring (or zone) on stem, orangish spore print. Intensely bitter tasting, but this character is apparently somewhat variable, and Alexander Smith suspected that Gymnopilus spectabilis intergrades with Gymnopilus validipes which is not bitter tasting.

The dangerous mushrooms you want to make sure you're not getting include:

Galerina autumnalis - grows on wood, rusty spore print, deadly.
Cortinarius gentilis - grows on ground, rusty spore print, deadly.

Be cautious, and get help with identifying them the first few times, to be sure.

Happy mushrooming!

What you said toxic...yup sometimes you will find galerinas as large as the smaller gyms...and as well there are different types of Gymnopolis some active and some not. The main variety of active Gym...the spectabilis, (and there are sub varieties with these as well) tends to lay down a nice powdery reddish brown print, will most certainly have yellow flesh throughout...open it up to be sure. I also have noticed a certain smell to be almost always present in the most potent variety, a sweet anise like woody smell, allthough someone Mr Mushrooms seems to find this not the case. In my travels I usually find a fair amount of blueing/greening in the mushroom as well...allthough not as intense as with some other psilocibin containing species...still very much present.
Hope this was a little bit helpful...cheers they are one of my favorites.

"...I found dozens of single specimens.  That's what I call hunting.  There are only a few "good" hunters here, even now.  You're certainly in that group.  I would imagine if we hunted together we'd find our styles are similar."

RIP Matt, your friendship and your contributions to the world of fungi will be missed. Unfortunately we never got to hunt together.

G. spectabilis is a bitter tasting mushroom which leaves your mouth puckered worst than from lemons for two to three hours after cheing on a small amount.

They grow only on dead tree stumps and macroscopically resemble Arnellaria mellea, the honey musrhoom.

There are now 13 known species of Gymnopilus which have psilocybeine and/or psilocine in them.
