I was using Tylutki, E. E. 1979. Mushrooms of Idaho and the Pacific Northwest Discomycetes, but the online keys by the Pacific Northwest Key Council has both species in couplet 11.

Dennis Desjardin also has both in “Spring Fungi of the Sierra Nevada” booklet for his class at Yuba Pass.

Darvin – what are the differences in the spores that one should look for here?
