But both pulmonarius and cornucopiae are species with lots of different forms that are commonly used for cultivation, and I can think of fugitives anywhere in the world..
The pulmonarius I have seen have been very shortstemmed and not as fasciculate as this, but on the other hand, the whole stem is usually ribbed in cornucopiae..

may just be due to fruiting on top of fallen log. Looks like a Fagus log.
Recorded for North America?
