It reminds me of some mushrooms I saw identified as Boletus gertrudiae last summer.

under them to see if spores are still falling. The final picture is what they look like now. The red staining on the far left section is due to Nh4 and KOH. But there was some red staining around the margin on the one to the right.

Real interesting Bolete Stephan.

Did you get a spore print?
Are those pinkish tints real and maybe from Tylopilus type spores?
Xanthoconium montaltoense might be a remote possibility but the pores should bruise mustard-yellow.
