Growing on wood chippings

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

I found this yesterday growing on a path covered with wood chippings of unknown origin. I would greatly appreciate any help in identification.

Many thanks.

Very many thanks Andreas! It was one of my suspicions, but the brown (rather than orange) colouring of the cap kept me in doubt. It's good to have an expert confirm.

Best wishes to you

It's those forking gills that give it away
