…perhaps would be a better name. Is there a subgenus Nigracantes?

would have stained almost immediately black. Cannot be R. nigricans.

the dingy, mottled colors and stature place this mushroom in that group.
The staining can be quite slow and faint, especially in this part of the subgenus, where there is a reddish phase before the eventual gray/dingy/black staining.

No staining

I thought Nigricantes was a section in the subgenus Compactae, typified by its unique staining reaction. No staining? subgenus Compactae sect. Lactaroides?

with R. dissimulans, but might be very young R. nigricans. This year has been wierd. R. nigricans usually out in August, but still coming up now.
