Notes:
Found growing under live oak after this week’s heavy rains. Lemon yellow pore surface in younger material. Darker drab greenish pore surface in older. Yellow context with occasional rusty red staining, particularly around larvae tunnels. Pileus is dark brown to chestnut, though I wonder if the rain has influenced the color. Stipe is variable: scurfy, with a yellow ground and rusty red fibrils that seem more common and pervasive in older specimens. Taste and odor are mild. Does not stain blue.

These were found under the same tree as obs 245350, leading me to believe that the two collections may be of the same species (though, clearly, there are some macroscopic divergences, particularly the apparently different stipes). I would add finally that this collection seems to hew pretty closely to Bessette’s and Roody’s account of the “southern form” of H. subglabripes.
