It was growing on buried old wood

which would be difficult to identify. It was growing in a conifer dominated area. However, since I couldn’t find detailed information on P. pouzarianus and since it was not listed on Dr. Desjardin’s Sierra Spring Fungi List, I decided it was safe enough to go with P. cervinus.

are you sure?
