Could very well be T. plumbeoviolaceus

Tough one here. I really didn’t get “purple” when I observed it but it didn’t bruise “olivaveous-brown” either. I defer to the MO experts :)

Looks more like T. plumbeoviolaceus to me

T. rubobrunneus has a pale colored stipe that bruised olivaveous-brown. The purple colored stipe suggests to me T. plumbeoviolaceus

stem of the second picture looks purplish to me. You know best though and no purple means it’s not Tylopilus plumbeoviolaceus.

I’m not sure I’d call the color purple.

I’m not sure I’d call the color purple. The photo is pretty accurate to what the color actually looked like. Sort of a deep gray with just a hint of red hue.

American Boletes doesn’t mention Tylopilus rubrobrunneus having purple hues on the stem
