you cite my Mindo observation in your P. strigoso-zonata proposal, but that specimen’s hymenium doesn’t look too phlebioid. From what I remember of it, it was pretty uniformly smooth.

Definitely hygrophanous

Definite color change when these dry out. First images were taken in
a light rain, at around 65 degrees. Last three were taken when I returned
there two days later, after two days of freezing and wind. Last image shows
two collected that day, the darker I soaked in water briefly.

One man’s phleboid …
