I can’t see any other observations of auratile or anything like it from California, that’s strange. I don’t know if it is the right name on what you have here, but it looks close enough for an old specimen. I could let it pass as H. zonatum when I thought that was a name you were using for it.. But used as a synonym to concrescens, it was harder to look the other way :-)

thanks Irene!

H. zonatum has brown teeth and seems to be restricted to the Eastern US. Need to see the cut stipe for color and zoned bands or not. H. conigenum or H. auratile is the closest I could find in the west.
