I was apparently so excited on the day I spotted this, that I did not have time to stop and take a look. I think I am pretty set on T. plumbeoviolaceus. T. rubrobrunneus, no. According to the other photos on MO by IG, these colors are consistent but I don’t have enought info to say for sure.

On my property…

not far from the slope where the gray old species #17 Amanitas are found, I get large fruitings of boletes that look quite a bit like these. Also, in another area of my property. They are all intensely bitter. I have gone back and forth among violatinctus, rubrobrunneus, and plumbeoviolaceus. Got some good suggestions here on MO, but I’m still not sure if I’m seeing more than one type, or if one of these species exhibits variable color patterns.
