I was at the COMA location 19 years ago; it had nothing to do with mushrooms. I thought it would be nice to revisit, as the place probably hasn’t changed much. It will surely stir up some memories… Unfortunately, all the rain Copake will have for COMA has already fallen several days ago. It will be warm and dry there well into September. Still I think collecting should be much better than in NJ. This July and August have delivered the worst mushrooming I’ve seen in a long time in my home state. Darn El Nino!
I won’t be at NAMA; didn’t even attempt to register. I heard registration closed in less than one week. I am sure you will have lots of fun there!

It looked a little off for violatincus. I will not be at coma. Hope you have fun there the rooms are nice and had good ac. Hope they have some rain. It can be very good for boletes there if its moist. I also did very good at a number of rest areas on the way up that had large oaks, in past years. I will be at NAMA I think its the last far away foray that I will be at. I will still try to go to 3 or more of the closer forays this fall.

Cannot argue

Well, if the label said “violatincus”, why post it as Tylopilus sp., John? :-) My ID is based on your pix. The colors are dark; some color distortion is possible. I blew the pix up and saw the deep violet tones. T. plumbeoviolaceus is another possibility. Earlier this year, Dave W and I had difficulties separating T. violatinctus from T. rubrobrunneus. Examining the material directly is the only way to pull these apart, and I am very skeptical doing “virtual” ID from pix for most Tylopilus species. Will I see you at COMA?

They had it labeled as violatinctus.
