Notes:
Under Norway spruce near a dirt road. Hardwoods on the other side of the road, mainly beech, birch, maple. I saw no oak. I could find not hemlock. Same 4-5 acre coniferous plots as obs 242315 and obs 242312.

This appeared to be an older specimen, on the dry side. Pores are presumably somewhat faded.

Ammonia:
weakly amber on cap surface
yellowish on context
no notable change on stipe surface

KOH:
mahogany to nearly black on cap surface
rusty orange on context
reddish on stipe surface, but this may just be the ground color

Photos 5, 6, 7 show vertically arranged (pairs of) material with ammonia reaction on the left and 10% KOH on the right.
