what I’ve been calling H. umbilicatum in PA, NY, and VT…. a small fairly fragile orangeish hydnum that grows mainly under hemlock. Does the type seen here have the depression near the center of the cap?

is the common Hydnum under huckleberry and pine on the northern CA coast. It gets called Hydnum umbilicatum but time will tell if it’s the same as the eastern one or not.
