I found these growing under an old apple tree in eastern Washington in lots of old leaves, twigs and bits of old apples.
The gills were light brown, attached and fairly close together.
The cap of the largest one was 4.5" across and the stem was fairly meaty (1.75" wide cut right below the cap). The stem was the same light brown color of the gills with some white striations. The big specimen had wormholes but the small one was solid. The cap was roundish with the indentations seen in the pics below, with a glossy brown almost bronzish colored top. Slightly concave. Spore print is pending. The meat was white and did not bruise. It smelled like fungus but with a slight stringent twist.

The pics:

i hate those little mites that are shown in your last pic. I found some type of bolete a few weeks ago, that looked similar to that. but of course, it didn't have gills. I have no idea what that one is. I'll have to look through my books.
