It’s a pretty picture isn’t it?

This mushroom was found at my first stop of the day, and I wanted to visit four places on my day off. Mushroom conditions here peaked a little earlier in the week, and I knew some cool fungi would still be out. I had alot of ground to cover If I wanted to find them. This spot was not at the top of my agenda, but it was the last place I used my new tripod, and the tripod was missing. The weather channel called for clear skies, but when I woke up, it was overcast and threatening rain.

When I stumbled across these beautiful boletes it was already starting to rain, and I had not yet found my tripod (it turned up later). I managed a few quick shots before rain drops fouled the lens of my camera. I think this one turned out great!

does look like a Xanthoconium but like Gerhard, the pores are the wrong color in my eyes to.

It’s a Tylopilus

and could be_rubrobrunneus_ but I don’t think there is enough evidence from the picture to call it that.
Dan, do you have any more info about it?

Doesn’t Xanthoconium have yellowish-brown pores and not grayish-lilac ones?

In my eyes this is clearly a Tylopilus.
