The taste is mild without any hint of bitterness; the odor is faintly pleasant; with KOH both the cap and the interior flesh turn black immediately. I think you are seeing a bruise mark

The dark photos don’t do it justice. I agree with Noah, it doesn’t look like H. concrescens. If you still have it laying around, note the taste, odor, KOH on cap and interior flesh. It’s worth documenting so more photos would help. From these three, the major color appears to be white, but brown or orangish brown seems to be part of it too. Maybe it is young; the spines are just beginning to change color or is that a bruise mark?

interesting.

Not what I would call concrescens. Do you have any cross section pictures of it?
