This is the east coast T. magnivelare, there is some debate whether or not it’s the same as the west coast one. But it is T. magnivelare, a species that Peck described from the northeast. We find it in Eastern Hemlock woods and Pitch Pine sand barrens.
Sorry for the lousy photo, it was raining out and the lens was fogging up.

I assume that in youth it is far more floccose/shaggy? And ooooo, that smell.

I was surprised to learn that matsies occur in the East, but that Continental divide is almost as mental as it is physical, with each coast considered worlds unto themselves. Live and learn.
