I am not trying to prove or disprove the ID

I am making a report of Strobilomyces. If you disagree that is your prerogative. I deleted the out of focus shot, so now it is simply a species report. I hope this helps with the confusion.

Where are the scales?

Without proof of Strobilomyces, this obs. is in question. The sole photo is not enough to prove or disprove Strobilomyces, nor any other fungus.

Out of focus because I spent no time with it

it was surely Strobilomyces.

highly unlikely based on the single, out-of-focus photo. Would like to see many more photos of each specimen, Stephen. These might allow for scales to be visible.
