Dimitar Bojantchev suggested this identification and they do match what he has on his website and what I could find on the internet.
They were found in a primarily Bishop pine environment but there was a live oak nearby which was probably the host for these particular Corts. KOH on cap and flesh + brownish.
Rechecked spores 8-4-2015; ~ 9.0-10.4 X 5.5-7.0 microns.
Q(range) = 1.37-1.72
Q(avg) = 1.58 n=15
