Well, it looks like a fair match to Phaeolus schweinitzii to me then. Thanks for the help!

at different growth stages for P. schweinitzii. The photo here appears to show somewhat reddish brown pores.

Not sure.

As I said, I didn’t find this, so don’t have a lot of information on it. I believe it was found in a National Park though, so would expect that there were trees nearby.

Does the dark brown pore surface not rule out Phaeolus schweinitzii?

Were there any trees
