Note the very dark stipe.

the use of ‘you’ in ‘How would you describe’ was directed to Chaz, as in ‘How did it taste.’ Still nice to see that even the borderline-obvious questions get serious answers :).

that tasting these things is out of the question for me. I can probably put someone else up to it, I suppose. Unfortunately, this photo is a few months old and they’re no longer to be found. I did find quite a few during that period of time and they seemed to have a good long life span of about 10 days or more or less.

The cap and pore colors

suggest Tylopilus atronicotianus. If it was that species you would see rapid reddish brown staining of the pores with bruising.

a small piece of the cap flesh and see if it is bitter.

How would you describe the spore color and/or taste of these? Any bruising or discoloration in the stem?
