A weird anomaly

It looks almost poroid. I have seen this happen on other genera such as Tricholoma. Otherwise the look and the season and the habitat all fit brick caps,

i noticed that too

which I’ve never seen on any Hypholoma.

Mycowalt, I considered H. lateritium (or sublateratium) but was thrown off by the intricate cross-linking of the gills at the edge of the cap. Is this just late season pathology, or is it taxonomically significant?

wood not burned

No, I don’t think so. It is an old log lying on the ground in an old growth woods, and if it was burned, that was many years ago.

Is that wood burned?
