Fading from buff to yellow. Not pink, not fibrillose/ squamulose, not pulchrifolius. The entire mushroom is covered in pruinescence, did I miss that in Murrill’s description of pulchrifolius? These are not convex when mature, they are explanate. These were not found on hemlock east of the Rockies, they were found in woodchips in Oregon.

the caps are maturing and fading to yellow…
a characteristic of luteofolius.

we should be comparing them to Murrill’s description…not Hesler’s.
I haven’t been able to get Pecks’ s yet…

Is pink and fibrillose/ squamulose. It is related to G. aeruginosus and braendlei. The Gymnopilus species in this observation is buff and Glabrous with a superficial coating of white velar material.

Gymnopilus luteofolius…
NOTE Stains from bruising not in Peck’s or other descriptions. A collection in 1992 from wood chips at the volunteer fire station grounds in Sutton Lake, Oregon matched Hesler’s description of G. luteofolius in all respects except (1) greyish green tinges were evident on caps where they had been in contact or where handled; these colors may have been a product of the coloration in the cap context, as seen through a bruised cap; (2) pleurocystidia and caulocystidia not observed, and (3) veil whitish. The spores from this collection bore the same distinctive, random pattern of verruculose ridges indicated by Hesler (1969, fig. 3). The collection is not referrable to any other known species. Additional collections of the species were made by Kit and me same year at Cascade Head, Ore., and by Evers & Sieger at Birch Bay, WA.; latter is in (WA).”

Harley Barnhart is mistaking Gymnopilus pulchrifolius for G. luteofolius.

also, the type location of luteofolius and pulchrifolius is nearly identical.

this species is almost certainly psychoactive.
blue tones were noted bu Murrill.
