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.

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

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.
