I saw a lot of “rosecomb” on one collection of C. cascadensis too

You could always join BAMS up at Yuba Pass the first weekend in Oct., which will not be too late …

Nope, and haven’t been up this year yet, but I hope to get up there mid-Oct if that’s not too late, will look at home for some old pics if I have them from years past

Agree but also seeing californicus “recognized” as cascadensis elsewhere here…

In my geospatial-temporally small but often numerically large number of collections of this species in the Sierra under Sugar Pine at ~4,000, I’ve seen a lot of this exuburant hymenial overgrowth on the tops.

believe it or not …

just a few years ago this species was pretty much unknown by everyone!

now we are finding (and recognizing it) everywhere, at least in the northern reaches of the west coast.

to me, the most striking and important sp. characteristic is that whitish hymenium in contrast with the yellowish cap. chunky fruit body, too.
