Location: Not found by myself but was told it was in lawn/moss in Pacific Nortwest.
Spore Color: Tried taking spore print but it would not drop spores, doh =/.
Bruising: When the stipe was split in half there was a green spot there which slowly turned blue. In other places I have tried bruising it seemed to turn dirty brown/yellow.
Smell: The mushroom smells like piss and the standard mushroom smell bound together.

It resembles the old man of the woods mushroom, but from my field guide I have noted several inconsistencies between my specimen and the old man.

That's an unusual specimen. Given the bruising reaction and appearance of the stem I'm inclined to start my guesses with Leccinum.

Has it been dry there lately? The surface of that cap is very odd, and suggests dry conditions.

To help get a spore print from an uncooperative mushroom, try putting a bowl over it and sprinkling a little water in there (to get the humidity up and keep it up). It may require overnight for a spore print to form.

Happy mushrooming!

Happy mushrooming!

hey its me! when i looked at first i thought leccinum because of the stem and the bruising too, as ^^^^ said. Leccinum can often vary greatly in size and shape. sometimes they are tall and thin with an extremely spongy cap and sometimes they are lower and bulkier and wider with a more cheese-like cap when its cut. mmmm. it does look sun-baked.
