Observation 11: Xerocomellus dryophilus (Thiers) N. Siegel, C.F. Schwarz & J.L. Frank
When: 1996-02-15
No herbarium specimen

Notes: The date is only accurate to the month.

This is a reasonably common brown variant that I still think is X. dryophilus rather than X. chrysenteron due to the pinched base and the tendancy to grow in the exact same habitat and time of year. Compare to the reddish form found on the same day at the same site.

I’d never seen this brownish form, but I agree with your judgment that it’s just a duller dryophilus.
