Thank you for posting this interesting bolete collection. It doesn’t look like something one would find often so late into the season…

Thank you

Thank you, I. G. Safonov. I’m glad I included the spore print.

… is olive-green, not yellow, ochraceous, or yellow-brown as it supposed to be for a Xanthoconium species. The color of the mature pore surface and the all-brown stipe lead away from X. affine, too. I think these may actually be in the Boletus sensu stricto clade, something perhaps related to B. variipes var. fagicola.
