Maybe 120 species as of this date,

but probably more will follow. I think microscopy is your best bet. That and the location on Whitbey Island will be deciding factors.

My understanding is that the genus has 120+ representatives

in the PNW.
While the pinkish bruising of these specimens may be somewhat unique, I wouldn’t even know where to start trying to nail down a species ID. Even so I intend to do microscopy on them and will continue to save any specimens that I find with hope that they may be of interest to someone, someday.
Thank you for your help Daniel!

confirmed. Which species is up in the air. The basal rhizomorph present on many specimens, plus the light-colored peridium make species identification (for me at least) quite difficult.
