Need Help With ID

Judging from the cracks in the caps I'd say they've been there for a awhile. Are these mushrooms as orange as they appear in the photos? If so, then maybe a species of Gymnopilus. Spore print color?

I think these are a species of Gymonpilus. There are a few of these that produce large yellow to orange mushrooms that grow in clusters, sometimes from buried wood. 

These mushrooms are well past prime, which makes an ID tricky. So, confidence is not high here. The two things that point toward Gymnopilus are the overall orangish color and what appear to possibly be deposits on the stalk that suggest presence of a partial veil. Gymnopilus mushrooms have rusty-orange to rusty-brown spore prints; but a very thin print may appear to be merely light brown.
