Found growing at the base of a tree in a stream bed ravine which was moist but not wet. My first impression was a dark Boletus, but checking the pore surface found these gill like structures. This made me think of the gilled Boletus types, but have no experience with this type which may mean its something quite different. There is a subtle depression toward the center of the cap with a slight point in the very middle of the center (best seen at the larger photo sizes) suggesting this is something other than Boletus. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Mark

I looked at the other shots, and found Lactarius milk on the edges of the gills, so well done, Noah. I also wanted to include the possibility of effect by the temporary rush of the ravine water which would come and go quickly at this site. Thanks to both of you. Mark
do you have a picture of the underside of the other one?
A Hypomyces at work here. At first glance it resembles a Hygrophorus.
