Fruiting from a well rotted(brown cubicle rotted by saprophytic species such as Fomitopsis, Ganoderma, etc.) Western hemlock(as this species is usually encountered). My theory with this species is that it finishes breaking down rotted logs that are nearly completely sapped of lignin by saprophytes and then acts as a mycorrhizal partner with nurse logging young western hemlock saplings from cone to maturity(based on my experience/observations over many seasons). Will continue monitoring and researching this species in the field to compile associations with young, nursing saplings and well rotted host logs.

And for herbarium. Thinking of thinly sliced caps/stems in the oven at 400 with h olive oil, garlic, cumin, salt and pepper over cheesy toast this time :).
