Location: Colorado
Smell: Sweet and Fruity
Spore Print: White
Edibility: Edible
Color: Orange / White

Habitat:
High elevations under conifers. These were found around 10,000ft.

Description:
Looks very similar to Albatrellus ovinus. A. confluens as more orange coloring and caps and are not as tough and rubbery. Edibility is best in younger specimens. Usually a good quantity can be collected. They can be infested with bugs so finding them early is important. They have a very mushroomy flavor. We cooked some on the grill while camping when we couldn't find any other decent edibles around.
