the typical acidic taste of the cap cuticle. I did not taste the flesh.. On MO the only Eastern records of H. roseibrunneus are yours and some questionable ones by Eva Skific. It is reportedly widely distributed in the East but I have not recognized it.
It has a dry stipe which is pruinose to scurfy overall or prominently on the upper stipe.

H. tennesseensis has a dry stipe and smells like raw potatoes and tastes bitter. If they are unremarkable, consider H. roseibrunneus.
