beech and hickory will do. But you may have overlooked some young small oaks as well. That often can be the case if you don’t look aimingly.

I was looking at H russula but the fact that it was growing so close to decaying wood. There where no Oaks around for about 200 yards but there was willow maples and tulip trees and hickory and some Beech in the area.These where next to a stream area growing under willow.
