and strongly orange coloured caps, means something in the Hydnum rufescens group in my opinion.

Some phylogenetic work has been done with european Hydnums (including a few North American collections). The sequences are hard to interprete, and how to name the different forms is far from settled yet..
It also remains to study the DNA of this genus worldwide.
