I’m just going by what I see in the picture: A single specimen, not in a group, and very little of the cap, which is darker then what I like to see on oregonensis.
I see more glutinosus (and subroseus) south of San Fran than oregonensis.

based on where it was found (South of SF), and it tended to be in clusters, I;d say G. oregonensis is a bit more likely. A spore size check would help but not worth the effort!
