Notes: Found at the base of a Ceanothus Lemmonii, Pinus Sabiniana near as well. Smelled like a bit of old motor oil.

I will try get some microscopic description posted as soon as i can get some lab time in (gotta use the school lab as I lack a proper microscope).
Gonna double check for mycorrhizael associates, there are a handful of Pinus attenuata in the area which I may I have overlooked in during collection, but those two pines are only conifers present in this area which is dominated by Arctostaphylos (Unfortunately no Pseudotsugas there besides myself).
Asphalt or roofing tar is apt description of the scent.
Thanks for input Tuberales!
This may be M. euryspermus, based on the odor alone. A slight variation on the odor: I usually get roofing tar or intense asphalt.
Confirmation of species would require microscopy.
Pinus sabiniana as possible host is and interesting adjunct. Often associated with Pinus species, but I have not heard of that particular association before. Also associated with Pesudotsuga, pseudotsuga.
