Observation 104210: Tylopilus sordidus (Frost) A.H. Sm. & Thiers
When: 2012-08-06
No herbarium specimen

Notes: I find this almost every summer, here on a sloping part of my lawn which borders a wooded area. oak nearby.

The reddening of the context is more prominent than what is syggested in B/R/B. Also, the KOH reaction is not quite the same… but close. KOH: brown on cap; gray changing to brownish ornage on cap context; scarlet on stipe context and stipe surface.

Growing in a fused cluster of three.

Third photo snapped a few minutes after the first photo.

I find the bruising of the greyish tubes to be of most value in ID-ing. Blue to red-brown to just brown.
