Yeah, that reddish cap center isn’t what I usually see in our H. crustuliniforme. But Roody (Mushrooms of West Virginia…) writes about it, “…darker yellow brown to reddish brown in the center.” The photo he uses (book may be found online) shows one specimen with a ring of darker color (radius about 1/3 of total).

curious two-toned cap; a cut above most of our boring tan hebelomas!
