I tried to get it to accept chrysenteron group to hedge my bets a bit here, but it went to chrysenteron instead.

Cap texture more zelleri-like, altho I am used to a darker cap.

No time to go deeply into any of our collections tho…waaaaaay too many mushrooms, and off to Oregon in two days! They will all be at the BAMS meeting tomorrow night, though, and some were already sent across the bay to Dennis.

I am not the best with Xerocomus, but the cap reminds me more of X. zelleri. Did you get a photo of the pores? Check the bluing?
