Stipe appears to lack reticulations.

Otherwise, this does remind me of the B. subcaerulescens I find here in PA. Although I usually find this type early in the season (late June, early July) I have found it a couple of times in the the fall. Look for the bluing either on the pores or on the context where the tubes adhere to the cap.

My collections have all shown prominent reticulations.
