The area where I found this one

produces a lot of G. castaneus. Given that subalbellus seems to favor coastal regions, this one is probably just a pale castaneus. I had wondered about the amber brown stain on the hole in the pore surface. I do see a lot of variation in the color schemes for castaneus.
