Boleotopsis grisea or????

This is the one that dyed the yarns in the previous post...somehow this picture got lost in posting...if anyone has a better idea I am eager to find out what this is...

Boleotopsis grisea

It's my best guess so far and giving wonderful colours...very generous with giving up colour, the silver grey is on alum mordanted mohair, no additives, and the bronze green is on alum mordanted wensleydale locks and mohair, with ammonia....loving both colours and the exhaipust was a soft beige
having a hard time figuring out what it is for sure, so my best guess would be boletopsis grisea,and is fast becoming a favourite...let the mycelium keep blooming....
