Makes sense to me, Walt.

There’s only one location where I find these brownish-blood-red pored ones. This solitary specimen has a darker cap color than other observations I have made. So maybe these have all represented one species with variable cap color.

If I find some this coming summer, I’ll try to remember to preserve some material for study.

I am coming to the conclusion that these two might be one variable species. DNA may prove me wrong but separating them macroscopically will continue to be a challenge. Roody has eaten B. vermulosoides without incident.
