No specimen available

These are larger and colored a bit differently than griseus that I’ve found in the past. I’ve also been running across what appears to be very faded ornatipes specimens. So this has me wondering just a bit.

Spore print showed no reddish tint. So I think we can rule out Tylopilus. I’m just not used to seeing griseus fruit bodies that are this large/robust.
