B.e. is uncommon in pure douglas fir forest in my experience. I have
found it only once, and even then it was so old as to be mostly mush.
(That must be why they call them mushrooms, huh?)

It is possible there are more than one variation of B.e., or even that
there are several closely related varieties.

Nice pictures, btw. And might I also say you showed admirable
restraint in not eating the evidence.<G>
