It seems to associate mostly with Hemlock.

Should work with both.

The literature shows it associated with both — hardwoods and conifers. In our area I’ve seen this species in mixed woods where there’s almost always Tanoak sneaking. In Colorado I do remember seeing H. chrysodon where no broadleaved trees were present – only Spruce and Pines.

I have also seen it under spruce at Albion in Mendocino, CA. I’m pretty sure that there were no hardwoods nearby.

H. chrysodon in spruce woods.. But it sure looks like it. No hardwoods nearby?
