Used references: Arora, Mushrooms Demystified. Arora says pores “1-3 per mm”. This appears to have much larger pores on top. But the combination of pores on the cap and around and down to the stipe atypical. Arora’s key (p. 555) says “pore surface usually redenning when handled”. Some reddening near the cap edge and toward to base.
