the texture of the cap seems to indicate sect. Hispidoderma

I believe that might be dirt?

I have tried pinching the stipe in different areas to see if it can account for any true “bruising” and it does not appear so. Also the context inside the stipe and on the cap does not bruise.

is the stipe…

Would think it wouldn’t be too hard to get to species with this one. Definately not in P. cervinus group.

I will take some more pictures of it, it was more of a pinkish tan. Very different from P. cervinus I think, and the very strait and narrow stipe is different as well. I will upload some microscope images as well.
