seems to be getting recognized everywhere, at least from Mendo and points north.

Indeed, color is not always well reproduced in a photograph. Young formosus can be quite stocky:


which is why I asked about this example.

I remember seeing these and they had a brighter yellow cap color and whitish “gills”. I think the colors are off because the pictures were taken inside. The stocky stature and clavate stipe are like cascadensis, not formosa.

cascadensis is locally common on the far north coast, I saw hundreds in fir/hemlock forest last fall.

young and smallish?

with orange brown (not bright yellow) caps and a pinkish cast to the hymenium?
no thin edge to the cap, either.

why are these not just young formosus?

Nice Darv!
