Used references: Aurora’s Mushrooms Demystified, p. 102. This seems to be the only species which fits this mushroom in Aurora. The yellowish-(light)brown spore print, the yellowish (straw-colored?) gills, striate margin, cap 15-20cm wide; stalk 10-12cm tall. While it is “abundant under coastal pines in fall” this collection was found under a solitary Douglas-fir in SE Portland.
