Edibility: Edible
Color: Orange / White

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

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.
