this might be a good candidate for DNA work.

it is interesting. the yellow tones on the cap seem unusual.

reddish colors noted by Oluna eliminate fibrillosus.

Good eye, Davide! This is exactly what we used to call “pinophilus” here in the West!

I (Try) to label each collection I save with the observation number, but I’m just an individual and there aren’t any nearby mycological herbariums so my collections could be organized better. I imagine it wouldn’t be a whole lot of extra work to label your collections with the MO observation numbers as well. Although I can see why what you propose would work in a real herbarium, if we did it here like that most of the observations would never get updated. Look at project noah for example. Please feel free to adopt that quote to however you feel is best, I personally do want people to change my observations if there is a good reason.

You can keep track of your observations with their number, it does not change, ever. This observation will always be 202842! :)

I don’t think this is Boletus rex-veris

The coloration is off, as is the habitat. None of the trees listed in the comments are known to host B. rex-veris. In addition, this species is extremely rare near the coast.

this looks near to B.pinophilus
