Okay, the clearly defined stipe…

is a far cry from the “central column-like structure” which Mushroom Expert mentions for L. rubriviridis. So I agree, this obs is not representative of that weird subterranean Lactarius.

But as for sweeping generalizations… Agaricus bitorquis is an example of a stipate agaric that develops below ground, and often stays there after maturing.

unless that’s just where it was placed for photography. either way, it’s stipitate, which defies any likelihood of being hypogeous.

poroid?… or ambiguous?

Where does it say this was found “well above the ground on moss-covered wood?”

If one ignores the small matters of occurrence in an angiospermous Central American rainforest, presence of a poroid hymenium, and occurrence well above the ground on moss covered wood.

Just happened to run across…
