Ecology is often poorly known

but it is really strange. Usually C. piperatus fructificates in acidic conifer forests late in season and is more psychrophilous as far as I know.
Maybe there are more species in Chalciporus than we know although some newly described species have been proven to be synonymous and representing just aberrant forms (perhaps your find is just aberrant too).

yep

i agree with you ,colors are pretty different. for the colors it is near to piperatus but never heard of it in sardinia.i guess everything is possible

It is not

C. rubinus though I think. The colors do not fit. Look at my observation from last year.
But it is a bit strange for piperatus too. And it is not C. hypochryseus.
