It clearly is L. aurantiacum/rufum/“albostipitatum”. I refuse to recognize the latter name. It is a very unnecessary extra name for a species well known since centuries with a name established since the beginning of taxonomy as well. No need for Noordeloos&DenBakker to create new confusion for the sake of being forced to “make” a new species or name in a publication.

Will take picture of the area today, to be more sure about the surrounding trees. I can mention that there are a lot of sambucus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elder_tree) trees in the area. Will take a picture. There are no oaks in that area.

I can only see aspen leaves on the ground.

And some from alder.
Besides, stipe has whitish then turning reddish-brown squamules.
L. albostipitatum is a new name for L. aurantiacum/rufum, the Leccinum growing with aspen.
L. versipelle/rufescens on the other hand is growing with birch and has BLACKISH squamules.
Were there oaks nearby?
