This mushroom had a cap about 3-1/2" dia. The gills were white and the stem broke like a Russula.
About 10" wide. There are several of these growing together. I have seen they for the last few weeks but only took picture of them today.
Several specimens, 3-5" caps: emerging through leaf litter in this grove of oaks.
On a boulder with partial sun exposure. Leaves mostly 2.0 x 0.6 mm (3 mm with awn) Adaxial costa width only two cells.

At the Dwight center, emerging from oak leave litter near mixomycete species.
These red bellied newts are all over the Pepperwood Preserve entrance road after the recent rain. Interestingly, we seem to see California newts in this part of the preserve more often.
There was a patch of about 6 of these 3 to 5" caps. The base seemed a little bulbous.
