the apparent touch of purple at the apex, the pronounced reticulation at the top of the stipe may suggest something other that T. plumbeoviolaceus. Also, as _T. plumbeoviolaceus matures, the cap and stipe are rarely concolorous, and to my eye they are here. But, as Bill details below, at the closing stage of its ephemeral life who knows what this one is… Next time try for bitterness.

Thank you Bill

Very informative!

old and faded, sunbaked, cracked…

makes ID of these brownish Tylopilus so hard macroscopically. This looks like an old T. plumbeoviolaceus to me….hint of rich purple still at the top of the stipe. It could, however, be any one of 6 different Tylopilus, all of which fade in color to the same ubiquitous, boring, dull browns.
