B. zelleri

I’d suggest the possibility of B. zelleri based on the dark, somewhat purplish cap color and the reddish band of color around the extreme margin. Also, I don’t see any bluing on the pores, and the stipe is rather thick and the reddish color is abudant and concentrated rather than streaked and diffuse.
