My mind has left the building. Confusing G. turbinatus with G. subalpinus. Mea culpa.

According to Thiers, there is no “immediate” blue staining for this species. My specimen looks just like http://mushroomobserver.org/10934 collected in Diamond Lake Oregon and just like G. subalpinus on mushroomhobby.com. This is a young specimen, completely whitish gray on the outside surface. White context, olive pores.
