The cap and stipe

The cap is near the dark extreme for Caloboletus marshii, and the red in the stipe is probably beyond the range of completeness and extensiveness seen in that species. Both of those in combination with the far north coast geography point to B. rubripes.

For what it’s worth if this same mushroom was pictured on oak duff in Santa Cruz in September or October, I would have called it C. marshii without too much hesitation…

C. rubripes based on the amount of red on/in the stipe and the location?
