for your interest in my observation #211837. I wish I had the time to pursue this more thoroughly. But I do not. I returned from a trip two weeks ago and am now involved trying to identify LOTS of mushrooms from a totally different area from where I live – Northern New Mexico and Northern Arizona. I look at the photos and realize how little I do know. I did find some postings on this site of the exact area in question – Santa Fe Ski Basin (Windsor Trail) in New Mexico. That has been a little help. Think this project will take months. I am sure there are a number that will end up in my unidentifieds. But it was a wonderful experience just seeing what I did. I call it mushroom heaven. A wonderful place! Hope to repeat next year.
Does anyone in your club have a microscope? Boletellus has ribbed spores, and x400 magnification is enough to see this feature.
Your mushroom could be a species from the rubellus/fraternus/campestris/harrisonii complex. The pseudochrysenteroides page on Kuo’s Mushroom Expert describes how to separate it from the above lookalikes.
