Re: What makes it ochraceous?

Old age or bruising.

See p. 356 in Largent, D.L. 1994. Entolomoid fungi of the western United States and Alaska. Mad River Press, Eureka, CA:

“… pileus and stipe becoming ochraceous (light orange to orange) with age or bruising …”

Oluna’s identification was based on microscopic characters, i.e. the size of spores (10-11 × 7-8 µm), presence and shape of cheilocystidia, absence of pleurocystidia. Check Ian Gibson’s MatchMaker for distinguishing this taxon from similar species. – Adolf

nice Oluna!
