Isn't the stipe too stout for B.chrysenteron?

Which species were you

Which species were you considering.
The tomentose pilius of this fits with a few but has the lumpy look of X pruinatus, The stipe is bulbous and I find some X chrysenteron start out this way also the cap can develop at different rates. The red in the centeral part of the flesh of the stipe fits with X chrysenteron and X subtomentosus. The latter can have a clavate stipe but this often broadens at the apex.
Take your pick.
