I’m guessing that the significant difference, in this case, between B. rubripes and B. truncatus is the striate red stipe. i.e. the lack of lemon-yellow coloring on the apex of the stipe…?

I thought rubripes because of the uniform surface of all the caps. These didn’t have the cracked pileus surface of mature B. truncatus or B. chrysenteron in any of the examples we found today – dozens.
