These were a fun find! I saw them two years in a row under the same massive hickory. I didn’t see them this year though!

Nice find,Geoff

I read that C. lutescens has a well defined collar (updated: I now see some of that collar on a few of the specimens) – but you’re certainly right about these not being very red.

I find them every fall under a set of hardwoods including a large Mockernut hickory.

hello to you as well!

Thank you, Sir. I do love photographing them. And puzzling out their IDs — though it can be very tricky! Hoping to meet some friends here!
