hi chris,
i found these mushrooms in my back yard near portland, maine.  i think they are B. subcaerulescens. its hard to see in the picture but they have a very distinct netting on the stem. the mature mushroom is probably 8-9 inches accross. They smell amazing, earthy and nutty fresh and buttery dried. the colors seemed to be a little closer to pinophilus but it stained blue slowly and then to ochre. i love your website,
   thanks Kevin
