Snowman’s right.
Although the genus briefly went into Callitropsis, only Nootka Cedar stayed in that genus, leaving all our local cypresses in the genus Hesperocyparis.

I’m sticking with Hesperocyparis

I first ate this with David Arora and Lee Yamada about a year ago. It was quite excellent. The flesh turns red quite quickly when cut.

well, at least you guys let fly with the common name of its tree associate …

a lot easier for us non-botanists on MO!

This one has been popping up a lot lately. Did you eat it, Ryane? Fred Stevens claims that it is a good edible, and frankly I find the wild Agaricus some of the best.

by Bert Cregg from WSU mentions this:

“Now, as if all this weren’t confusing enough, subsequent work by Damon Little based on molecular markers groups all of the Cupressus species in North America and the two Xanthocyparis species under one genus, Callitropsis. Little et al’s re-classification and rejoinder by Mill and Farjon (2005) demonstrate the schism which has developed between taxonmists that rely heavily of cladisitcs and molecular tools and those that rely on morphology and evolutionary relationships. Their debates are far testier than any barbs traded between Linda and the Brothers Horvath. Check out this link for a taste of the action:

This is the second year that I have found it in the Mendocino area. As far as the Monterey cypress, I will look into the newest genus name.

New genus for cypress

I think is actually Callitropsis, not Hesperocyparis.
But I only did a rudimentary search on it.

I haven’t heard of this that far north.
