No specimen available

Two specimens fruiting within a couple of feet apart in association with madrone, bay, and oak. Pores very small and blueing instantly. Stipe doesn’t turn blue, at least not within the 20 or so minutes I spent in it’s company. It did have pre-existing brown stains, though.Didn’t know to check for reticulation on stalk and doesn’t show in photo so who knows? Looking at Arora I’d say this could be B. appendiculatus or B. regius. I’m leaning toward the former. One pileus 7cm across, the other 10cm. One stipe 2.5cm, the other 4cm wide at apex.

Looks like B. appendiculatus. Excellent edibles!
