Brown cap & brown stem. White-buff pores tint pink w/ age, & stain brown. Cap flesh stains dull brown.
Likes oak. T. badiceps is very similar, but this grows larger, ages to have pink tones in the pores, has flesh that stains more brown than pink, has a pink/brown vs. purple/brown spore print, & is typically a half-tone darker. Both are good edibles.
