Notes: Small boletales, not sure even which genus. The caps are at most 2cm in diameter. They were fairly brittle, and the caps would break off easily. These are rather young caps shown here, the older caps would quickly get attacked by Hypomyces, found plenty of white fuzzy guys near by.
Found under oak and maple, other mixed stuff was near by.

The color would vary from light tan to deep chestnut brown, always slightly velvety. It looks like there isn’t any stipe ornamentations.
stipe ornamentation is also important, and i can’t tell that from your photos.
taste? and I’m assuming that you didn’t travel with your chemical testing array…
