Found, brought in, and id’ed at the SMG meeting by others. There was some confusion about the name perhaps, it seems that C. helveticus is the common name for the local Chroogomphus with a veil. Another name was suggested, but there was no consensus. I don’t know enough about the local species, and it seems that Chroogomphus is general is not a common ’shroom in the area.

described that grows with Picea abies, but now both forms are considered conspecific, so you find it under spruce and under Pinus cembra, with the latter in higher altitudes of course. It is a rather common fungus in the alpine regions and differs from the most common Chroogomphi of that region by a felty cap.
