About the only time you’ll see that much red on the stipe of B. sensibilis

is before the cap expands. Once the cap expands the stipe is usually partially yellow. Not so B. bicolor which can and does frequently have a stipe entirely red (but not neccessarily so). Also to chime in on this OB a little, having seen both these species 100’s if not 1,000’s of times, the cap of bicolor does regularly become aerolate in age but sensibilis almost never does. not to say that any color combo of red and yellow isn’t possible for both of these common species but these are my observations from CT

This fades first to pinkish or pinkish yellow and then brown, bicolor fades reddish to yellowish, sometimes reddish-brown but always seems to become very areolate with age.

Here is a old collection of sensibilis
