Ron, Xerocomus isn’t that shaky. It’s the X. subtomentosus group. zelleri/chrysenteron are different, but close.

I think section Fraterni will get their own genus as well.

left the marks of your teeth in it, your sweet tooth! Just kidding…, so beautiful colours, indeed.

That’s funny.

Thanks for the info.

You should have plenty of Boletus species

in your area. In fact, Xerocomus is a shaky genus concept that may disappear after all the DNA dust has settled.
That being said, your bright red “Boletus” is interesting and not bruising blue virtually eliminates most of the usual suspects.

Xerocomus in my area. no Boletes, and from what I understand colors vary greatly within xerocomus.
So would this be a better proposal?

Neat find. Looks like a VERY pink Xerocomus or something in section Fraterni. Any blue staining?
