Neither of the pictures show what appears to be the dried gluten on your collection. It is a glutinous species when young. It fruits late in the season under broadleaf trees, often hickory.

I don’t own that. do any pictures show H. subsalmonius with this much colored material on the stem?

Thanks for the help!
