G. pulchrifolius doesn’t have pleurocystidia and was described from NY on hemlock…

“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).”

I think that is an east coast species
