It’s C. infractus

I do see some reddish discoloration on the gills. It’s very bitter and the spores match C. infractus, they are 5 × 7.

Do I see purpling there?

Alan, I see some subtle purpling ont he gills where bruised — this reminds me of C. purpurascens. If you think it is C. infractus, please check if bitter. If you do not wantt to taske it, look for round spores… But looking from Bulgaria at it, I’d say C. purpurascens — if so, it should have small spores with strong ornamentation, 7-8 micron long…

Good photos!!!
