I hope you will eventually update your obsies with summaries of DNA results. I am particularly curious about the diversity & identity of the red-pored ones in your area vis-a-vis those from eastern NA.

Just sent out plates for most of my Boletes today.

To me this looks like the oak-loving subvilutipes-like taxon found in Northeastern USA, e.g., 243062/244417/244419/244426/250474. That species or species complex has a orange-brown to red-brown to fox-red cap and a yellow stipe covered with a sparse coating red pruina, sometimes arranged in vertical lines. Have you sequenced this one?
