7,000+ feet. But Yosemite, so…

I’d still vote for R. occidentalis. I have found R. occidentalis with P. ponderosa and P. contorta; both near the Pacific Ocean and at least 3,000 feet elevation in the northern Oregon Cascades. In my experience, R. occidentalis mature very quickly, and often has areas of citrine-yellow on the gleba, as this obs. does.

R. ocraceorubens or occidentalis

If it was on the coast it would be occidentalis, but I’m not sure about the Sierra pogons.
