It is deeply calcareous. Even Boletus torosus is growing there if you check my obs.

from other obses in the area (salor, atrovirens etc), it’s calcareous soil there. That alone rules out saginus, and it hasn’t got blue gills either. The very even cap colour points towards varius, and it is a species that is often found at the same locations as salor and atrovirens. So I should just as well call it that..

This was during a well-attended foray.

ID is not mine.
We didn’t have variiformis or tiliae (no limes present at all), but we had varius too. In looking at the pics it now seems likely. I miss the squamule-like appressions on the cap that are somewhat typical for saginus. But I am not sure if it could not be saginus though.
