No red on stipe…

..was a sticky point for a carminpes ID…the 7 fruit bodies I collected ALL had bright yellow stipes…so “carminipes=red foot” wasn’t adding up. as well as the cherry red KOH reaction on the cap cuticle…not that I put THAT much weight on KOH reactions and at times I drifted over to a psuedosensibilis nd /or miniatopallascens…I’ve collected carminipes before and with red on the lower stipe but I know that many of the boletes with yellow reddish stipes can vary considerably.
