I was surprised when this was what keyed up. I was looking at the chrysenderon’s
This was up on the ridge at about 900’ Elevation. We don’t get much freezing at that elevation.

Looks like it…

That really does look good, with the thin red stipe, cracking cap, and the random amounts of red on the pores. This is a kinda rare form out there. I heard suggestions that this is just a B. chrysenteron with some problem during growth, like with freezing. But there probably wasn’t a period of freezing?

I’ve seen others that look like B. chrysenteron with only a slight flush of red on part of the pores. It all makes me wonder these reddish pored guys…
