Collection seen at Oregon Mycological Society MycoCamp (foray) on 10/21/17. I can’t say for certain but collection probably came from Cape Lookout field trip. The habitat there is primarily western hemlock and Sitka Spruce.

Collection given to Catherine Callaway (grad student at SFSU) for research connected to her degree program.

I don’t understand why Mycoweb continues to use Tylopilus when even their new mushroom book, California Mushrooms, list this species as Porphyrellus. If Tylopilus is the correct name you might wonder why Index Fungorum, Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast and Mushrooms of the Pacific Northwest all use Porphyrellus as the preferred name at this time.
