Agree. There are reddish tones as well.

Could Paxillus be a much more complex group of species?

I don’t think that …

this one is similar to yours (if you a referring to observation 185290). In fact, in spite of the dominant color of yours being brown, there are some redish tones all over. Also, there pruinosity on the stipe. I do have a proposal of a name for yours, which I will do at that observation.

Mine is similar

I’m also very curious about what species this could be. I have a dried specimen that I will scope as soon as I can.
Regarding your question about the color of the gills, these are concolor with the edge, so is the color your can see in the photo, let say … cinnamon.

I’d be interesting to learn what species this turns out to be, zaca.

The gills are dark brown, as is the stipe. But the flesh does not appear to be brown at all. Can you verify gill color?
