Used references: Helene M.E. Schalkwijk-Barendsen’s Mushrooms of Northwest North America, p. 91, 92, 272. This appears to be a slightly lighter shade of what Schalkwijk-Barendsen calls “pale orange to orange brown” with a stipe that is “the same colour as the cap”. She notes finding this 1 Aug. 1977 at Sandy Lake, Alberta, Canada.
