growing out of a Doug Fir stump?

unusual habitat, altho Hesler also made a similar observation.

This would be an excellent candidate for DNA confirmation. Didn’t the PSMS also contribute monies for DNA? I would imagine they were interested in samples with a PNW focus.

Sounds like the latex was milky then changed to almost clear? that is typical of our CA candy caps. If the micro matches and the DNA, well, guess that they do occur up into the PNW. But their odor is apparently much less potent, so would like to see more confirmation before agreeing.

These were with Doug-fir

not sure why my vote was displayed that way. I think these are candy caps.

what was their habitat here?

I also suspect that these are not candy caps, but why did you change your vote, after listing all of the reasons that you thought that they were candy caps?
DNA?
