Field trick to seperate look-alikes-

Lots people mix up plumbeoviolateus (PV) and violatinctus(VT). PB has PURPLE in the stipe, not all the time but when young. Real honest-to-God purple. In PB the cap and the stipe are SELDOM concolorous no matter what stage they’re in. The cap of PB has some shade of gray lead-color or coppery brown. VT is pinkish-violet, not purple in the stipe, at least to my eye. VT is often concolorous between cap and stipe. The cap and the stipe seem to fade color at the same rate. Of course they both fade to a dingy brown in the end and then forget all. The twisted one is this OB is PB as per Noah and Walt.

reminds me of driftwood except the color.

Plumbeoviolaceus or violatinctus, I’d wager
