No specimen available

Found fruiting here originally in October of 2011 while on a foray with the Vancouver mycological society.
This year we were a bit late to the party(although it is only mid September)-these were far past there prime. Images this season show size of fruit body, and amount of spore deposit when this species is fully mature.

Fruiting from the base of Douglas fir stump.

Elevation: sea level.

Temp: low 70’s.

NOTE: No green or bluish staining where handled on stem or cap margin.

how does one tell these apart from junonius?

both can occur on conifer wood; both occur in the west; both are similar in shape size and color, and their spore measurements over-lap.

is there a recent publication w/DNA that clears this ID confusion?
