A dainty little thing! Sticky pileus is 5 cm across. Stipe 1 cm at apex. Live oak, manzanita.
The stain on the pores is dark brown, not blue. I should’ve mentioned that I couldn’t create or find any blue stains on any part of the body. The tubes were a rather brilliant greenish yellow, rather than the dull ochre described for Chalciporus piperatoides at Mykoweb. The stipe is slightly thicker below (as Arora describes the stipe of B. flaviporus). And it does fit in the size range described by Arora. Finally, there’s the manzanita, which Arora describes as a favored habitat for B. flaviporus, which might also work for Chalciporus piperatoides, but I still think B. flaviporus seems to be a better fit.
