appears to be X. dryophilus, it just has faded (which it commonly does). The red rounded stipe base, deep blue staining on the pores and growth with Liva Oak are distinctive.

I will add, that’s its one of the few (only?) CA name that is being incorrectly applied to a European species

Xerocomus chrysenteron or something in that clade.

this is Xerocomus chrysenteron or a near specie due to the lack of peach coored flesh on the stem. instead i see that the flesh nder the cuticle is red and the base of the stipe has rhubarb flesh.
