oregonensis is generally paler and with a more deeply rooted stem – and is said to have significantly shorter spores.

Probably G. oregonensis

In my experience, you cannot reliably distinguish G. glutinosus from G. oregonensis without measuring the spores. What I find in coastal CA almost always is G. oregonensis.
