Dark cap color.

I have collected longicurvipes with dark cap color. I used to call the dark ones “viscidocorrugus”. It’s my understanding that visci and longi have been lumped. But that was last year…

Pale pore color kinda bothers me. These look to be fairly mature, so I’d expect to see a little more color on the pores for longicurvipes.

Stipe ornamentation looks to be too organized for Leccinum… some patterning rather than just scattered scabers.

This bolete is definitely has elements of the leccinesque morphology. The pileipellis texture and viscid surface quality strongly suggest L. longicurvipes. The stalk has a dense cover of reddish scabers that also point toward the above species. The cap color is a bit too rich for longicurvipes, however.
I’m surprised it hasn’t been transferred out of Boletus yet in light of all the recent nomenclatural changes in the Boletaceae.
