Phaeolus schweinitzii, or the cow pie fungus, is a root parasite of conifers and causes a dark brown cubical rot. The young fruiting bodies are mustard yellow and vibrant, turning a chocolatey maroon with maturity, and then eventually into a pile of burned cookies. Look for spruces with bottle butt and resinosis!
The first three pictures are from a Douglas-fir, Tanoak, and Madrone forest in Humboldt County and the last one is from Redwood City, California.
