Brief Description: [See More | Edit]

Pileus 3-12 cm broad, convex, then flattened to shallowly depressed; surface glutinous to very slimy, the thick slime giving a spotted or reticulate appearance to the surface, with an ochraceous ground color showing off the netted pattern, red when young, becoming “mahogany red” to chestnut or “burnt-sienna,” unchanging or darker with age and the slime becoming blackish on old pilei; margin concolorous, incurved at first, often elevated or flared later, appendiculate with veil remnants, narrowly sterile. Context up to 12 mm thick, firm, watery yellow, flavous (“amber-yellow” to “pinard-yellow”), becoming paler and near lemon-yellow, reddish around larval tunnels, separated from the tube layer by a brilliant yellow line; taste mild; odor mild to slightly pungent and unpleasant.
