I don’t see this species very often, and this example no longer had its fuscous veil. Appendiculate cap margin plus stocky nature plus medium sized plus all of a size stipe also leans towards fuscovelatus.
I did not notice red staining, though.

I lumped this individual with another collection nearby, which may be perobscurus. Oooopsies!
I will try and look at these (and others) under the scope today. Yesterday got away from me! Too much field/travel time lately, and plenty of home catch-up.

That spore drop sure is BLACK!
