for this one seems different than the coniferous areas where I’m used to seeing badius. But one similarity was that this mushroom grew near decaying stumps, probably oak. This was a spot where I was gathering Armillaria. Forest floor was inundated with low-lying bushy coverage. It’s possible one of the decaying stumps coniferous wood.

Your mushroom reminds me of the Pine Barrens bolete I used to find at a single location in Wharton State forest and identified as I. badia:

Yours, however, is lighter in color and blues more readily, but I agree with you in that it has a decent amount of morphological affinity to the Bay Bolete.
