The stains appear to be dark blue-green. The photo was apparently taken with a flash which is known to distort colors. The pilepellis erratic color scheme (brown/red/yellow) is typical, too, for B. subvelutipes.

Just maxed-out the photo, and it does show what at least appears to be black stain. There also appears to be a slight greenish tint to the pores closest to the pileus edge. Curious.

Black stain?

Are you sure it isn’t dark blue or bluish-green? The pore surface looks reddish-orange, at least to me.
