Can’t say it isn’t

Can’t say it isn’t Amylocystis but it’s way below snow level for the area, at about 500 ft where snow level is more typically 3000 ft; and no spruce of any kind anywhere around. Dry Douglas-fir/shore pine forest. The log it was on is most likely Douglas-fir though it might also be western hemlock. Whatever it is it’s full of bugs.
