Found under oak.

Stem has no netting whatsover. No yellow band by the pores.

Cap is sort of bumpy.

Bright white flesh does not stain. Not particularly dense either.

White pores age brownish. No staining.

No notable taste or odor.

I thought this was an easy ID but the chemical tests have me a little confused. No reaction for FeSO4. No reaction for Ammonia either, except perhaps for an orange tint on the cap skin. But KOH caused a bright red stain on the cap skin, and possibly a slight reaction on the flesh. That does not match the reported results.

I actually don’t know purpureum

I felt pretty good pegging it to Xanthoconium, but beyond that my poor Pooh-bear brain begins to strain. What makes you lean toward one rather than the other?

looks like Xanthocomium purpureum to me but..

…I guess additional information will leak out here eventually for a better understanding of what we’re seeing
