I only had one pic I took of the staining reaction, I always run my fingers across the gills then sit and watch the change happen, its fun for a myconerd like me!

I am confident with my ID, I always find this species in this area, then I eat them:)

It’s not related to the stinkhorns.

Maybe add a pic with the staining reactions (yellow & brick red)

Good edible, and enough easily recognized features to be confident of ID
