salicinus group

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
