A chrompes group . . .

like Bill commented already. Specimens have been overhandled particularly on the stipe, but the chrome yellow base is still evident, and the unmolested stipe apex (2nd image) shows some pale pink and fine scabers as members of this group possess. That cap sure is red though.

Judging by the color of the pore surface and the staining this looks closer to a Tylopilus, something close to T.chromapes or something like that. This group has been called the Pseudoleccinums (by A. Smith and others) and although it appears to have “scabers” they are not quite the same as the scabers of Leccinium. There are a number of species that fit this “no-mans land” of “almost Leccinum” including T. chromapes, T. exiimus, Boletus rubropunctus, B. longicurvipes, etc. I don’t know if this helps?
