I am not sure if the Second from the bottom is the same mushroom than the others it was a couple feet of. And I did not taste that one.

Second from the bottom shows violaceous tints on my monitor. But looking at the cap and stipe colors of the small one in the background, I am reluctant to try and name this fungus. I can’t think of any mild tasting violet bolete. Some men can not taste bitter but I am assuming you can.

you’re not the only one confused by some of the subgroups of Tylopilus, in this case a group of non-bitter ones. Looking at this obs in my office now, there does appear to be a slight violet tinge which I did not see on the monitor of my home computer. So in light of Bill’s comment under obs 136987 it seems to come down to whether one sees the color of the mushrooms here in 202365 as being violet or merely pale tannish/brownish.

I made the “could be” proposal of indecisus as an alternative to ferrugineus. But frankly, I find it difficult to express a high level of confidence for either proposal.
