The first image looks like repandum, but the second image looks like umbilicatum with one repandum. I’m pretty sure I have collected Umbilcatum and repandum in close proximity to each other in Marin. Could you possibly have both in the photos?

fair enough.

if you saw the characters in hand, that’s good enough for me.

collected at the same site and time had the characteristic “belly button” of hydnum umbilicatum. There were also no pines present which from my limited experience, is the usual partner for hydnum repandum.
