Notes: First time finding this bolete at Washington Crossing.
[20/1/1] L x W = 15.3-16.7 (-17.2) x 5.1-5.6 um
L’ x W’ = 16 × 5.4 um
Q’ = 2.97; greenish-yellow in KOH; hyaline with multi-guttulate content
These measurements are below the measurements reported by Smith & Thiers and in B-R-B (17-21 × 5.5-7.5 um)

It doesn’t look like X. badius. I think B. rubropunctus is much closer to the pseudo-leccinums, such as B. subglagripes and B. longicurvipes (maybe those have already been moved to Leccinum). In fact, if you subtract the red coloration of the stipe, it will look very much like B. subglabripes.
I’ve collected both (?) in the NJ Pine Barrens under scrub oaks (see my observations 74478, 73650, 73649, and 55018). The varying degree of redness on the stipe creates a confusion with the southern form of B. subglabripes (if it’s still recognized).
Is this close to B. badius? Reminds me somewhat of this conifer-associate.
