which develop the depressed centers on the orange caps, and which I find beneath either pine or hemlock, typically impress me as being examples of H. umbilicatum. I believe that I have also found H. rufescens here in NE PA, but much less frequently. This type has the orangish cap, is somewhat larger than umbilicatum, and tends to occur in open areas not necessarily under conifers.
