Don’t remember other trees

I don’t remember which other trees were nearby, and my notes were sketchy. (This is an old observation which I originally listed as Boletus chrysenteron and just now renamed to reflect the deprecation of that name in favor of Xerocomellus chrysenteron.)

Re staining, see Notes.

What hardwoods?

Any oaks nearby? The lack of pink in the cracks and very vinaceous-red cap looks more like X. dryophilus. Any blue staining observed?
