I agree it’s mighty close—-I note the edges are also not really fringed either though, the color was slightly more orange than tan or brown and combined with the lack of scales……..makes me curious than ever :)

are on the center of the cap. I agree it is atypical but I think this is the right ID.

It is completely void of any scales on the cap

if it P alveolaris, it really atypical!

Wouldn’t this disqualify it?
