Collection location: Diamond and Crater Lake, Oregon, USA [Click for map]
These were growing on the ground among mixed conifers @ ~ 3800 ft.
Caps up to 8.5 cm across.
Taste was mild to sl. farinaceous.
The teeth were whitish with a pinkish tint and up to ~ 2mm long.
Spores were brownish and ~ 6.0-7.1 X 5.8-6.3 microns, and nearly round but with prominent angles and rounded warts.
The “trial field key to Sarcodon in the Pacific Northwest” seemed to lead to Sarcodon rimosus but spores were a little too large and not all the colors match up.

and it does seem that the higher NW elevations yield some interesting species.
These are available for anyone to study in more detail should anyone feel the urge.
I have a growing interest in west coast Sarcodon, this one is really different, thanks Ron.
