for T. felleus. Stipe should have brownish reticulations. Cap should be tan to brown to pinkish… infrequently purplish. This specimen looks too pale.

Mykes, did you taste this mushroom?

I guess Tylopilus rhoadsiae

has more evidence to be Tylopilus felleus than anything else.

I have spore print as well.
