Recognized by sight: Parasitic Bolete lover. Lots of golden-colored maturity in first photo. I wonder if the large size might not be related to a cluster of Boletes?

Rhizopogons too, which have now been shown to be related to Suillus mushrooms. May seem a little odd. I’ve never found H. chrysospermus on Suillus, but I find it almost every year on Rhizopogons, and sometimes on other hypogeous fungi.

..something in the Boletus subvelutipes group, although there were dozens of different boletus species in the area.
