I wondered about…

the purplish pore surface on collection B. My confidence about plumbeoviolaceus comes mainly from the purple stipes. But, collection B shows weaker color on the stipes.

I’m basically still trying to figure out violatinctus, plumbeoviolaceus, and rubrobrunneus.

I see what you mean about habitat, Igor. Plumbeoviolaceus is supposedly a hardwood associate. One area where I believe I have found it is a birch/maple forest with possibly a few oaks in the vicinity. The collections posted in this observation were made in the hemlock/birch areas near the stream where we had hunted together a month or so ago.

My voting confidence is low. The colors are off, especially for collection B (last two pix). I don’t recall ever seeing T. plumbeoviolaceus with the pore surface concolorous with the stipe/cap; I think it’s more common with violatinctus. Hemlock habitat suggest the latter, too. What are your thoughts?

Igor, do you think that both…

collections are T. violatinctus? Labels on photos A or B indicate collections.
