I have a large patch of T. badiceps growing at work right now, probably about 100 specimens. The reticulation on them is extremely variable; some don’t have any, some it’s just at the apex, some go over halfway down the stipe.

This looks like T. badiceps to me, too, based on the unique color scheme of the fresh specimens. Interestingly, the cap margin is not beveled and the upper portion of the stipe (i.e. more than just the apex) in at least three specimens is prominently reticulated. Usually, it’s the other way around.
