2 Species?

Arora seems to think there may be either 2 strains or 2 species involved. One is associated with birch in fall; another larger variety/species with pine and oak in late fall/winter. Fresh material may not stain red or brown. Older, mature material usually stains red and/or brown, including the gills, stipe and flesh.

Have you found this associated with pine or oak, Darvin?

The lawn was freshly watered. No red stains that I noticed.

Did the gills bruise red?
