Recognized by sight: Could even be B. edulis, an extremely good edible, Steve. Cap should be slightly more brown than the photos show. Tubes underneath should be more white in young specimens, and these are the ones you want to dry and eat. Makes wonderful spaghetti. I think these are mycorrhizal with Kinnikinick (=bearberry).
