good to know what these things look like as they age. they are easy to ID when exuding red droplets!

I didn’t realize that they were bicoastal, either.

Taste it, smell it and cut it in half and photograph it…

I think you’re onto something here, Noah…

I saw orange in the cap and thought aurantiacum. But aurantiacum shouldn’t have such a fuzzy cap, even tho it has a definitely orange margin. Kinda fits old peckii better, but the orange color isn’t quite right, and neither are the teeth under the cap. Here are a few more photos of the same fruit body, ten days later. Whaddya think?

it’s not orange… peckii maybe? do you have any spine/flesh shots?
