I went back today to check for it again so I could actually ID it, but no luck.

like a typical B. fibrillosus from the top.

I snapped this shot while waiting for the bus, I have no other pics. I was a little wary of calling it B. zellerii as well. I may get a chance to shoot this one again later today on my way to see Noah speak at the PSMS. Thanks, fellas!

Not sure

that this is B. zelleri – the little bit of the stipe visible in the first photo shows no red, the cap isn’t purplish, reddish, or even very dark, and the pores don’t look like they are pale yellow either.
The only thing that fits in my mind is the bumpy-corrugated cap.

Tim, any shots of the stem? It would be nice to see how red it was. Nice specimen!
