I don’t have the manuscript handy and the identification was made br Dr. Bessette. The clear to orangish gluten which stains the lower stipe is a good feature. The attached photo is of a collection that I made in NC which was identified by Orson Miller, I believe it to be the same species. http://www1.appstate.edu/~walkerjf/appfung/hglutin.html
It is variable, occurs with broadleaf trees or under broadleaf hemlock mixed woods. There are glandular dots at the stipe apex much like those of H. pudorinus. It is not the same species as the one illustrated on the Quebec website which to me looks like H. gliocyclus. There are four collections illustrated in the upcoming book.

for fuligineus. I only find it with White Pine. How about H. tephroleucus? (B/B/F)
