Fibrous top I thought they could be chlorophyllum molybdites but the spores are not green.

Other Mushrooms: Chanterelles, Kings, Shrimp Russulas, & Maybe a Prince!?
General Information: Most things were just poking up about 10 miles east of Chinook Pass, except for one king that was a foot across. About half of it turned out to be usable. Roughly 5 lbs., with that one bolete accounting for half. Still a bit warm and dry for serious action. Pictures following are of a mushroom that looks like a prince, but I gather they are coastal and not generally found in the east Cascades. ID, help please. Forgot to put in a coin for scale. Cap is roughly 3" across. Vestigial ring not as visible as when picked.
