I agree I have seen the ones in California and these look a little different, in the east here in Pennsylvania we get one at cooks forest that also looks different but we call it the same. I think I have seen at least 4 of 5 mushrooms that are very similar but all given the Name. I would bet this group needs a lot of Work.

Huh.. Maybe it is just young and dried out, but this sure looks different from the C. vanduzerensis I have seen! They seem to usually have a darker cap and more purple stipe. But looking at other collections here on MO a few look more like these.
