Notes: A single specimen growing on the west bank of Coopers Road (between Muddy Rd. and Norlemon Rd.). The mushroom had no physical obstructions to grow straight up, yet its stipe is curved and bent.

all three observations of yours (currently being discussed) look like the same species… red-capped, yellow pored, stipe with red streaky flush over yellow ground color, blue staining (albeit, variable for the three obses). These traits all fit miniato-pallescens. And as we seem to agree, each of the other robust red-capped types is eliminated as per one or more dependable traits.
So, IMO you have provided a nice array of miniato-pallescens observations. Of course you will want to get more of this material and subject it to careful analysis.
They come from different habitats, but it’s conceivable 215764 was growing under an oak tree, and that’s all that probably matters. Looking at 142424, I think its colors are a bit more vivid (maybe it’s the flash effect?), and there is more red on its stipe. From the morphology alone I would expect the two to be very close to each other on the genetic tree. I will be on a lookout for this species as I still remember where I found it.
