2000 at Tillamook County, OR, elevation 5-150 feet elevation:

Tricholoma flavovirens (Man on Horseback) Choice edible

Cortinarius sps., dark brown cap, viscid, 1.5" wide, purplish blush on
Dentinum umbillicatum YUM!
off-white faded Russula, 3.5" diameter cap, _not_ R. brevipes

Macowanites sps. (about 2" tall, 1.25" diameter cap, convoluted gills:

All in all, a production forage.

Not found (and I really expected it to be out): Rhizopogon occidentalis.

Most abundant fungus collected was Hypomyces lactifluorum, with perhaps
10-12 pounds of fairly firm specimens.
