I do not know about an Aureoboletus species

that is poisonous.
“My” Aureoboletus gentilis isn’t for sure (self test), indeed it tastes very well.

‘California only’

Yes, it looks very similar to Aureoboletus auriporus, which is what it sounds like you found, Mvrak.

Looks identical to pictures, right next to a tree in the woods, maybe oak… confused that all references say California only.

edit: It honestly looks closer to the pictures for this than Auriporus, but I’ll trust your judgement. No edibility/poison data anyways! I think I’ll post an observation…
