there are several Xanthoconium in this old army base/woods. Did I need another reason to keep searching lol? Maybe I’ll find a plethora of Xanthoconium there.

I was about to propose…

B. campestris (and also mention the very similar B. rubellus and B. fraternus) until I saw the whitish pore surface and stipe lacking pruinose coating. Seems like an interesting find to me, Jon. From underneath, this looks more like a Xanthoconium than a Boletus. Maybe X. purpurea?
