I think the alternative name is a much better match. I can also report that the taste was mild and delicious.

The cap was very sticky when wet, and retained a tackiness when it dried a bit. I did not think this fit.

The stipe bruised a light brown, slowly.

Different species, perhaps?

Typically, the cap of L. rugosiceps is very pitted/corrugated even when young and NEVER viscid. Did the context slowly stain reddish? I will post my own observation of L. r. soon…
