Growing 13" from this observation, same decaying log.
Microscopic features seem to match despite no bluing reactions

the absence of bluing would not totally rule out that this is the same as your other observation from the same place (http://mushroomobserver.org/113712). In the taxa around P. salicinus bluing usually gets more intense with age.
on the other hand, several Pluteus species can co-occur in a small geographic area, and sometimes on the very same spot
There are a couple of species in the salicinus group that grow on conifers but they have not been (yet) recorded from Western North America.
If you send a couple of specimens over I can have a closer look and try to get molecular data for this collection
