Caps 4 cm diameter; peels ~ halfway; crowded white gills.
Stipe 3-3.5 cm long x 9-10 mm at apex, solid and easily removed from pileus.
Taste mild; no odor.

Found closest to Quercus rubra and Betula lenta.
Photos of gills not clear enough to propose a high degree of confidence.

I must be losing it. Just checked my notes under chems. and noticed that I did not enter the reaction to KOH, which was cap yellowish in KOH. My apologies.
I’ll keep checking this spot and may find it again this year. Thanks for your help.
I don’t think this is variata — I don’t see any forking gills.
Bad images of gills and no spore print or spores with smash mount makes iding this difficult. But! The ease with which the stipe was removed from the pileus without damaging the gills led me to R. variata because of possible flexible gills. Went to the same location today but nothing there. Better luck next time.
call this R variata but I couldn’t edit it before you saw it.(-: Typing too fast, hit wrong key. Voila! Fungi enters the equation.
