I did not bring a single mushroom home, and now that I am here, I wonder, “why not?”. Drying a few things would have been easy – and adding spores to an observation is generally much appreciated.

These are on Madrone

based on the bark in the first picture, which is typical of the species not only in being finely flaky, but also has moss growing on it (never happens on redwood)

Collection of this one would be important

It is a pity that there is no collection for this observation. So far we know Tubaria punicea only from Arbutus menziesii.
