I guess I misinterpreted that part then.

The key versus the description

The species description says white to pale whitish. The Key lead says white to ochraceous because the other choice in that lead goes to T. tropicalis, which is pale ochraceous. That key lead in no way says that T. wisconsinensis itself is pale ochraceous.

The key calls the “[p]ileus white to ochraceous”

…with the main differences from T. ohiensis being the paler cap, pore size, spore size and not being perennial. I’m not very confident in my ID here but some of my finds I have ID’d as T. wisconsinensis have pores more consistent in size with T. wisconsinensis but caps more on the off-white/ochraceous/yellowish end.

This is not white

The paper describes T. wisconsinensis as being white to “pale whitish”. The one here in photographs is the typical ochre to brown color of T. ohiensis.
