No specimen available

I thought these were gone for the year, and I was confused by these because I didn’t find them under live oak, and the gills are free. They were also frozen solid when I found them, and thought I wouldn’t get a spore print. But no, they threw lots of white, white spores. Looking at the description in Arora for C. dryophilus it doesn’t mention free gills, but in the photo comments for them, he mentions they are sometimes free gilled. So, oak was close enough, and they were near some trees I’ve been told are black oak,
