No specimen available

Fruiting with live oak.
Pileus: viscid when wet, dark brown fibrils radiating from umbo which is broken into minute brown scales.

Stipe: white at apex then pale yellow with reddish brown stains and pale yellow mycelia at base.

The one in situ was 11cm across, the one in my studio was 6.2cm across, stipe 1.5cm and total 11cm tall.
Spores white.

I’ve looked at T. sejunctum and T. aurantio-olivaceus as possibilities but not sure how to distinguish, and not sure if there are other possibilities I’m missing.

No odor.

Either T. sulfereum or T. sejunctum

Under live oak, and this greenish cap and gills, it will be T. sulfereum or T. sejunctum. T. sulfereum will have the odor of coal tar. (I can’t remember if I spelled them correctly.)
