Rowan Co., NC
USA

Found alone, growing from soil, in mixed, predominantly pine, forest.
-Virginia Pine, (young) Maple

Pileus:
4cm broad, brown, convex, smooth, dry, margin curved inward
Flesh is creamy, soft and slightly staining brown where touched

Tubes:
White to creamy, .3cm deep, small and circular

Stipe:
7.6-8cm long, 3.8cm wide at base, 1.3cm wide at apex, creamy to white with brown net-like reticulations, club shaped, quickly enlarging from apex to base, dry
Flesh is white and soft

Smell:
Old fungoid ?

Taste:
It wasn’t good, that’s for sure. It kind of made my tongue tingle.
I guess you could call it bitter.

Spore Print:
Unknown
I printed it for two days and it did not produce.

I thought this to possibly be Tylopilus felleus.
Although I’m really not sure.
Any thoughts or suggestions are welcome.
Thanks.
