The forest was mostly Douglas-fir followed by Pinus and Quercus. I examined the stump and I am sure it was coniferous, there was some oak nearby, but not much.

as far as I know…

we only have ONE species of Omphalotus in the west, so olivascens it is.

although MR connections can be shrouded in mystery (and lotsa dirt), logs on the ground should be a lot less ambiguous.

Was there any hardwood around?

Conifer growth for this species would be a little remarkable.
