as http://mushroomobserver.org/image/show_image/37211?search_seq=646909 … This is a rather rare summer species and a good edible. It differs from B. pseudoregius in more pallid cap colors going into silvery gray with rosy tints sometimes on the brink present but can be easily mistaked with these species when old or not very characteristic. Both share the same habitat too and can often be found intermixed!
