Habitat: Older specimens growing at the top of a ridge in a dense mixed hardwood/coniferous forest in NW Georgia (Gordon County), US. Mostly under large oaks and ash trees. Near moss.

Flavor: Indistinct. Pleasant.

Pileus: Dry. Ash to chestnut brown. DNS. Orange/dark yellow on KOH application. Similar change (slightly lighter orange) on ammonia application.

Flesh: White. Slightly pinkens when cut. Very subtle pink to orange hints on KOH application. Similar reaction of light pinkish/orange on ammonia application.

Fertile surface: White. Some browning from age? Changes slightly more gray when cut but no major bruising. Pinkish/orange on KOH. Brighter pinkish/orange on ammonia application.

Stipe: White/gray with brown reticulation on almost the entire length. Base is a deep gold (also gold inside when cut)

My apologies for no photos for the chemical reactions! I have somehow lost those photos!
