Recognized by sight: really dark color with pale rim and a slight textural difference I can’t put my finger on. If you see it again, pull it up – I’ll bet you see a fluted stipe (may be short) beneath the cup. Something like what we’ve called H. leucomelaena probably

Cool, thanks, I wouldn’t have thought to pull it out of the ground. Looking at the PNW Key Council, H. crassitunicata is macroscopically similar to H. leucomelaena but fruits in the late summer and fall.
