Bill, observations Nos. 26489, 26523 and 26524 came from diffent geographical locations, i.e., different parks (same year and month, though, but different dates!). Also, take a look at my most recent post, 26526, read the notes therein, and compare it with the other three. Thanks.

26524 looks like X

purpureum to me as well but 26523 is not so definative. Are they from the same collection?

input, Bill, — you could well be right about this one being X. purpureum. What is your take on observations #26523 & #26524?

I can see why you lean to Tylopilus

because of the “apparent” pink tones to the pore surface in the third pic…but that sure looks like Xanthoconium purpureum to me.
