I kept the one with the orange cap that you can see in the photo. I am working on it to see if I can tell any other differences, I will put it in the dryer later tonight or tomorrow but I want to show it to someone else working on boletes, We will be leading a bolete walk at 10am tomorrow so with my luck there will be no boletes there lol. Hopefully there will be it has been a good bolete spot in the past. I will ask him if I can send you his bolete keys when I see him tomorrow, They are different. I will explain more about them later.

Looking forward to your obs, John

It was the stipe that made me propose Xanthoconium. I’ve never seen one with an orange cap either. Did you preserve it?

When I first saw the orange cap I thought wow, the stalk and other features looked like Xanthoconium affine. There were Xanthoconium affine var. affine in the same area. Never saw it with such an orange cap. Thought it was worth a photo. I did not have any good ideas. I am sitting down with a half dozen boletes working on them tonight. I found some cool ones today and will try to post some photos soon.
