Russula claroflava is a species that grows with birch and prefers swampy places.
Easy to recognize when it’s a bit old and has turned black on gill edges and cap margin, and also in the flesh a few hours after it’s been cut.
Do you even have claroflava in California? Maybe, but I’m sure you have other yellow species too.
