on the stipe as well (although obscure, but it’s another good marker for B. querciregius). I mentioned the possibility of B. persolidus because it can sometimes show reddish tones in photographs where flash was used, like observation 30176).

Not sure why oak habitat and fall fruiting were mentioned, those factors fit both this species as well as B. persolidus.

I agree. red rather than brown.
