cut one in half; IF an introduced rubellus, the stipe context should be yellow, slowly staining to bluish green, and reddish orange at the base. handling the stipe should leave brown stains on the surface as well. cap context also bright yellow.

in the east, rubellus grows with beech and oak.

This was growing underneath Birch

Trudell & Ammirati (p. 218) state that the X. rubellus group can be found in the PNW in grass, mossy lawns or edges of trails, always near oaks, cottonwood, willow, basswood, or linden. Tim, if you could provide a precise location and/or photo of the trees near where you found these on Mary Gates Memorial Drive, we can help out with tree ID. I know the small trees in the median strip outside CUH are some species of live oak.
