but live oak were most likely in the area.
What other features would lead to X. dryophilus; constricted stipe base?, wider spores?, lack of reddish content in the cracks although red is evident on the cap edges?, more glabrous stipe?. Maybe I talked myself into it.

Were there live oaks nearby?

Looks like X. dryophilus with the bicolored stipe and garnet-red cap
