Not Rhizopogon

which normally has so many rhizomorphs on the peridium as to look almost like a piece of felt, where each individual strand is a single rhizomorph. Also, Rhizopogon don’t generally have a basal strong rooting attachment, as shown. Might be Descolea again. BTW, do you notice the third sporocarp in your first photo, barely visible among the duff?

My camera was dying by this stage… however, I found this next (<1m) to observation #50393, which does include a cross-section pic. Sorry!

Is it possible to post a pic of a cross-section?
