Does not look like T. eximius and is not T. sordidus

T.eximius has caused poisonings. The picture does not show enough information.

I see a lot

of T. eximeus around here, and I don’t think this is one. The stalk of eximeus always shows a lot of small dark dots… not unlike a Leccinum, only smaller and more numerous. The one here seems to show a “brownish velvety bloom” on the stalk surface, which is how Phillips describes T. sordidus.

ID confirmation or correction appreciated.
