No specimen available

I do not recall whether this was terrestrial or on decayed wood. But I think if it was obviously on dead wood, I would have noted this.

of greenish or yellowish on the pores. I suppose it’s why I didn’t gravitate toward Tylopilus to begin with… pores not pinkish or brownish (along with the patterned aerolate cap surface). B/R/B mentions that the slight yellowish tone has been observed for T. sordidus.

Lacks yellow which also fits T. sordidus.

are these pics. But I think Walt may have nailed this one. The wide pore openings, lack of yellow or red in the context which shows through the cracks, and the aerolate cap all match T. sordidus.
