Specimen available
Collection number: Ron Pastorino RLP11-15-08B

These were growing near planted birch next to the Leccinum scabrum posted earlier.
The caps are small, 2.0cm and less. While the cap base color does seem to fade to a dull cinnamon, the fresh specimens appear to have a violet tint to them. Pictures found on the web seem to confirm this.
Spores were checked on 10-6-10. They were ~ 7.3-8.2 X 4.3-5.6 microns and moderately rough.
