We have both S. caerfulescens and S. ponderosus in Oregon.

But this year was so dry for so long almost didn’t have anything for display. Oddly, 3 days later everything if popping up.

I would vote against S. ponderosus for 2 reasons: 1) not large enough. Specimen tag is 3 inches wide, making this specimen about 5 inches across the cap. S. ponderosus is closer to 8 inches across the cap. 2) Pores more yellow than pink. As displayed in Arora, S. ponderosus has a distinctive pink tint to the pores.
