I don’t believe it’s Xerocomus in Sutar’s sense but here for this but I followed MO

…I found that MO considers Xerocomus the “preferred synonym. If I can’t find the paper that justifies this I’ll go back and change it. Alan justification for Xerocomus is that it’s listed on Index fungorum as Xerocomus. This seems like part of the :let’s rename all the boletes as quickly as possible” circle game but before I pass judgement I have to admit that I don’t have access to the 1996 Zang paper that uses Xerocomus for the taxon so I don’t know why he concluded that Xerocomus was appropriate.. It does not seem to fit into Sutara’s concept of Xerocomus for European Xerocomus and I have no idea why Ron P decided to accept this name on MO..So another irony of electronic publication is that because it appears on MO and IF it also appears on Mycoportal and Mycobank as Xerocomus. As I said it sometimes seems like a chain reaction of name changes among these four (MO, IF,MP, MB) after a paper appears

Very nice find.

I think that Davide P. has it absolutely right.

are you sure this is in Xerocomus?

nothing in this bolete makes me say it is a Xerocomus, starting from the very tiny pores (they are even red) ,the stem is obese and it looks almost leccinoid in the ornamentations .
Very cool find in any case, Bill.Cool to see these exotic (to me) species.

Interesting, Bill.

Here in NE PA the mixed woods often feature oak or birch. But the two tree types don’t seem to intermingle very often. I have never found this bolete around here.
