Hey Adam,

I think you are on to something! This mushroom was growing on the ground of a mixed forest, including pines, oaks, madrone, manzanita. I don’t think it was growing in a clump, like some of the other members’ suggestions. The entire mushroom is about 6" and the cap is about 2.5" wide.

growing amongst conifers?

“Slimy, sticky cap and stem” gets us to Myxacium but if it was found amongst conifers, as the many stuck needles and only 1 broad leaf would suggest, then wouldn’t it be Cortinarius mucosus? Also doesn’t C. trivialis have more blue and more abundant veil material? Just curious…
