did you end up saving any of these? They’re super interesting.
I think they might even be Melanoleuca – those rather crowded gills and that vertically-striate stipe

Noah, I also thought about this ID for a moment, but E. bloxamii is almost never caespitose (definitely not this strongly), and it usually fruits later in the season. Amanita calyptroderma and the tasty Boletus species are fruiting right now, and E. bloxamii usually starts to fruit a week or two later, at least around the UCSC campus.

Can you save a specimen (or 5)?
These need to be looked at if those caps are as purple-grey-black as they look.
