If you measure the spores they aren’t that hard to tell apart right?

I don’t think

there is anything to suggest that this is more likely to be G. subroseus than any of the other Gomphidius. It isn’t particularly pink, G. oregonensis can look quite similar. These are not as easy to tell apart as people have pretended, so until further investigation occurs, I think it is best to stay with Gomphidius sp..

Simular find

Found what looks like the exact same spieces yesterday under redwood. I got home and it had been smashed by heavy boletes in my bag. Had the same yellow staining on the stem and the cuticle on the cap pealed very easily. I narrowed it down to g. oregonensis cause of the yellow at the base but it was growing all alone. One source I read said that g. subroseus stains yellow the other says it stains an amber color.
