Personally I doubt these are tomentosa

…although I did see a few of those (fuzzy appearance with dark, blunted ridges on young specimens). Those in the photos I think are probably M. septimelata or M. sextimelata because they weren’t fuzzy (even when young). Although I could be wrong, as the young ones were darker than the mature ones.
