I will try and find a better specimen. This one had been rain hammered a bit.

B. zelleri can have that red cap edge and this specimen is pretty dak otherwise.
B. dryophilus usually cracks pretty extensively.

This collection is quite a bit further north than all the other B. dryophilus observations. If it is that species this would be a very interesting find. It does look like it could be B. dryophilus to me. I do not see oak leaves though, what kind of trees were nearby?
