…something that Murrill or Singer could have described back in the day.
For the record, I could not have never IDed this as X. rubellus – it just doesn’t look like anything in that group.
The gestalt morphology, including the hymenophore, are indicative of this entity possibly belonging in the Xerocomoideae (curiously, Xerocomellus is in the Boletoideae). Maybe something closer to X. hypoxanthus and/or X. hemixanthus?

for a fresh look given recent spike in attention to Florida boletes.
