Found this on a second-day pass through the hills in my neighborhood. Fairly certain it was not there yesterday when I walked by.
There are many madrone and tan oak around this area, very few pine. found this on an old “road” clearing on the mountain. This one pushed up through mostly soil and very little duff.
pores, flesh, and stipe bruise brown after a while. It was a couple hours between when I cut it in half and checked on it. Edit: After about 12 hours in the walk-in fridge (aka, my garage in the winter) the stipe is bruised blue, but cap is bruised brown.

both stipe and cap are sticky. When pulling finger away slowly from cap, little boogery looking strands pull away. Not as much as a banana slug, or nearly as tacky as their slime. You get the idea. :)
