I’m basing my id primarily on the pink spores that match the reference(North American Boletes B-R-B)for size. They were subfusiform and about 9-10 X 3-4 microns. The specimens are fairly mature so I can assume that they could have had deeper purple tints earlier. The stem had white mycelium at the base and no obvious reticulation. The pores showed some light brown bruising.
