should have more brownish spines at this stage.
In my opinion, the colours on cap and stem remind more of Bankera violascens.

Sarcodon joeides has a brownish yellow cap, pinkish to violet flesh, and grows with hardwoods.

on the pinkish color and lack of scales on the cap. Sorry, I didn’t really examine much more or take any notes. I think the taste was bitter. Found in a mixed woods mossy ravine nearby a small clear stream, Seven Tubs Natural Area just south of Wilkes-Barre, PA. Link below shows reference.

Any notes on this one?
