I could be of more help here, bot I only have a few other suggestions.
If the colours are right, it has a slightly violaceous veil. Then I think both C. lilacinovelatus and insignibulbus are possible. If only the gills are slightly violaceous, we also have C. albertii. I’m sure there are other alternatives too.

KOH reactions on cap and upper part of the bulb are important features…

You are right, caesiostramineus should grow with pine.

Thanks again Irene

I had the same doubt as you when I looked at some web photos of C. herculeus which is the name given by the Italian mycologist leading the foray. I found a couple more photos of the mushroom which show the tree association to be deciduous, oak, I believe. I think the other species you mention have coniferous association?

Yet another

that I have reason to doubt… C. herculeus belongs to the section Arguti, none of them with this kind of marginate bulb.

I don’t have a good suggestion, though. Something in the calochrous group, or simply caesiostramineus (bitter taste)?
