Notes: These had reddish brown spores that were approx. 6.5-7.8 X 5.3-6.2 microns.
The caps were up to 14.3 cm across.
The gills bruised dark reddish brown and the cap and stem seemed to also get darker with handling.
They were growing near Live Oak and perhaps Madrone.
None of the North American Paxillus species quite seemed to match. Paxillus vernalis was close and is said to grow with oaks as well as aspen, but the caps are always described as lighter in color.
