Cut it in half, If it is G.tsugae it will have a white flesh, G.curtisii will be tan with dark brown resinous inclusions, a bit north for G.curtisii though.

G.lucidum is not Native to North America, though there is some indication that it may be present in certain areas of the west. A closer look at those specimens is required. My observation 212603 is a good example, a similar collection from that area came back as a match for G.lucidum from the UK.
