We have received this material and accessioned it to Rod’s herbarium, It has been scheduled for DNA sequencing.

I have no current access to a scope, so I’ll send you the print and dried specimen I have. I’ll also see what I can do about identifying the tree it was fruiting under, at least to help broaden my knowledge of conifers.

we’ve got the genus all right…

as to species…possibly one of the undescribed members of section amanita.
you could check the spores for amyloidity yourself, or mail a fruit body to me. see my page for mailing address.
