help with coccora id (by )

I have what I am very certain is a coccora patch. I have been watching it for years. Photo has already been id'd as such. BUT...I would feel much better if someone could come out and verify this id before I start cooking. I live in Aptos. Is anyone willing to make the trip any time soon?

Yes, Albion is happening this mushroom season. However there will be some changes as we adapt. The major changes are: 1) There will be NO Saturday potluck 2) Proof of vaccination required 3) Masks must be worn in buildings We have booked this lovely venue and we welcome the opportunity to come together with like minded individuals. You will be required to follow Mendocino County Health requirements during your stay, including wearing masks, social distancing, and when possible, hand washing/sanitizing. At this time the Saturday forays are open to only folks staying at Albion..

The Albion Retreat and Learning Center is located just one mile from the seashore, eight miles south of Mendocino, and 28 miles from the Jackson Demonstration Forest, and 60 miles from Salt Point in the valley of an old lumber camp on the Albion River, it has welcomed students and visitors with its rustic charm since 1947. The Albion Retreat and Learning Center is owned and operated by Pacific Union College and offers an ideal base from which to foray in the nearby Jackson Demonstration Forest.  The Mendocino Coast is a bountiful haven for fungal species in any season. The Albion foray focuses on a wide range of fungi, with edibles including boletes, chanterelles, candy caps, matsutake and hedgehogs.   Go here to get your Jackson Demostration Permit.

The Albion Retreat and Learning Center features heated private cabins with private baths and a lovely dining hall with a commercial kitchen. The center serves as our foray base.
