This one doesn’t seem to be matching anything in Bessette et al keys perfectly. Pore surface didn’t stain at all, which would take it away from my first thought of S. americanus. It was mainly with oaks and hardwoods, although there were some pines mixed in. There are darker areas on the pileus, but I had a hard time calling them fibrils (for subaureus). I’m pretty confident that it was all one species – my photos were all within inches of each other. The ones you thought were a different species were actually much smaller, younger specimens. (All are in the dehydrator now). I saw a lot of these yesterday in the region I was exploring and they were consistently a very pale yellow with orange blotches.

a mixed collection, The top photo and 4th picture look like S. granulatus. I am not sure of the other 3. None appear to be S. americanus.
