The gills are not purple and wasn’t found east of the rocky mountains…

Which is why I didn’t call it L. amethystina group or L. bicolor.

It keys out to couplet 3 in Arora’s key: “Fruiting body medium-sized to large (cap 5-20cm broad, stalk 1-3 cm thick); common under hardwoods (especially oaks) in eastern North America.”
