mentioned to me that chemical color reactions on a mushroom may change as time passes after making the collection.

Just did chemical tests on both of these yesterday so caught my attention….
KOH orange on cap indicates B pseudocrysenteroides
I did get a definite red color on the cap for B chrysenteriodes….

Thanks being said, I would say I tested and looked multiple times because the
chemical coloring is not only subjective, but also can be change slightly moment
to moment. Its hard for me to say orange, brown orange, red orange, brown red….

Ground is also more likely for pseudo… but that cap color does not look reddish either.
