like it’s straddling the line between H. hydnoides and C. caperata, both of which (given the observations of each here on MO and images from elsewhere) possess roughened to hairy pileus surfaces and greyish pore surfaces when young. each sp. appears to be much easier to differentiate when mature; H. hydnoides darkens to just about jet black with stiff, erect fascicles, while C. caperata goes medium brown, partially zonate, without much pileus ornamentation.

hymenium staining/bruising?
