The mushrooms appear to be waterlogged, and that distorts the caps. At the same time I am surprised these are so fresh and bug-free inside.
In my experience, the southern form of B. subglabripes has more red on the stipe. Also, since the species are related to the leccinums, their appearance should be more graceful, and your look more “stout”. I notice lack of gap between the stipe and tubes, but perhaps that feature is variable.

the outside of the young ones seem to have some sort of whitish see through coating on them and a few of the older ones flesh becomes reddish. I agree it looks like the photo and that it seems to fit the southern form.

139311 does look a bit like B. subglabripes (whatever genus it’s in now).
I see some bluing on cap context of 109280.

I see some furfuraceous texture on the upper stipe of the fb on extreme left.

Southern “form” of B. subglabripes?

I have found subglabripes with wrinkled/pitted cap surface. BRB mention “reddish brown” as potential cap color for the “southern” version of subglabripes. But I don’t see the small raised dots on the stipe that I’d expect with this species. Stipe also seems rather pale for this species.

I still think these are morphologically related to hortonii & subglabripes.

I surely understand your excitement, and finding these would make my day, too! Congrats! I would save time poring over the literature and just ask Alan or Noah.

I took over 20 photos of it and have a large collection.

The caps were really red and really wavy and somewhat dimpled. I never saw anything like it. I spent 40 minutes taking the photos. I agree I don’t think they are hortonii, I have never seen it red. I spent the last hour with the bolete book and still can’t find it. It made my day when I found these. I really like finding something different looking. I will keep looking for something that fits.

No bruising or staining of any kind

Will this material be preserved & sequenced?

I don’t think these are B. hortonii, but I don’t have better ideas. Certainly not something I’ve ever seen!
