Identified by sight initially. Further reading revealed the sister species H. ferrugineum. They can be separated by taste. H. peckii is acrid and H. ferrugineum is mild. When I returned to the area where I took this picture another year, I found another mushroom similar to this one which I tasted. It was amazingly acrid.
