Daniel, I see you had someone ID it, and it is R. cascadensis. I was just reading about that in my Orson book as like R. brevipes, but more specific to your area (brevipes appearing in your area as well, though) but a very acrid taste instead of slightly acrid. The book doesn’t get into what non-taste macroscopic differences there are, however.
