Used references: Arora’s Mushrooms Demystified, p. 533. Until I saw the key in the first photo, was considering this the much larger T. rufeobrunneus. But the much smaller size suggests T. minor.

it has a depressed (minor) third in it. (ha, ha, little musical joke) I don’t know what they call it minor. Was Tylopilus major already taken?

Gee, Dan…

Should have a finely reticulate stipe according to Bessette & Roody. Also a stipe that narrows at the base. Otherise this fits pretty well a species I do not know well.
