Tells: Yellow baby pores age to dark red, then fade back toward orange-yellow. Yellow flesh may stain blue (slowing in age) but does not have to, & often smells fetid (oniony ammonia).
Other Information: Stem is yellow on top, but gets redder going down w/tiny red dots but no netting, and pinches in by the base. Likes oak but not exclusively. Bright red baby cap ages through dull red, rust, pink, orange, yellowish or brown. Cap may crack a bit in age. Cap flesh can be a paler yellow than stem flesh. Thin pore layer. A rare southern species.
Science Information: DNA work has moved this species to the genus Lanmaoa.
Edibility: Unknown. But if it smells bad, why bother?
