I don’t think that I have them any more but I will check that spot periodically to see if they come up again. I really need a microscope :-(

i found those in VT

Yes the surface was glabrous but only on the older ones, the young ones had very short fibers on the cap and a lighter orange/yellow color. I would call it brick red, to me the cap didn’t look brown at all, darkening towards the apex. The margin was not concolorous with the cap, it was a lighter color more of a orange/red than a dark red. I did not notice a veil at all but the veils in this group are sometimes evanescent. As far as the green staining I think that it is more of a dirty green color of the flesh and not an “active” green staining. I wish I had a scope because oregonensis is easily disgusted by “warty” spore or so I have read. It is likely that this fits in the gymnopilus sapineus group, I did noticed that the stem turned a dark dirty brown where handled or injured.

i don’t know…

was the cap glabrous? brick red or dark red brown??
the margin is not concolorous with cap.
partial veil?
nothing i have seen on Gymnopilus oregonensis notes green staining.
i would definitely send out a sample for microscopy.
