Recognized by sight: if the odor is farinaceous, sometimes but faint, sometimes very strong. If not, consider terreum-group but I think the fruitbodies are too brightly coloured for them.

the yellowing will come only when decomposition starts or when shrouded in mould.
Besides of late they have separated scalpturatum and argyraceum once more which I am skeptic about. T. terreum is usually more dark and often more stout and has absolutely no smell at all (but all are excellent choice edibles ;) ) and is mycorrhizal with pines exclusively.

… could be describe as vaguely farinaceous. On the other hand, I saw no trace of the yellow tinges that T. scalpturatum presents at least at maturity. Thus, I thought it could be another species.
