Thanks to all for the interesting comments!
I have the specimen available.
If there is interest I can ship it for DNA analysis.

…a paper is being readied on western NA red-poreds. Noah, you probably meant to write “western” in the first part of the second sentence.

There will be a paper

on western red-pored boletes published shortly, which David Arora, Jonathan Frank and I are working on. A lot of the sequences that these eastern red-pored species are gettign hits on, are sequences for this paper; mostly because there are very few eastern species which have been sequenced. We have found no overlap between western NA and eastern NA or Europe.

Full descriptions, and photographs of these species will be avaiabel soon. Until these new species are published, these names should not be used, as they may change.

Neoboletus sp. ‘vividivelutinus’…

…is not an officially described species yet. It’s known from the western part of the USA. Morphologically it looks very similar to the European Sutorius luridiformis. To my knowledge Dr. Jonathan Frank and Noah Siegel have a description and photographs of it. Preliminary molecular research on red-pored boletes found on either side of the Atlantic indicates that there is no species overlap between the Old and New Worlds. The same is probably true for the red-pored boletes found on the east and west coasts of the USA.

You probably don’t, I’m not even sure I understand what Neoboletus vividivelutinus is. Just pointing out based on recent molecular work done on this site if you were to run the DNA Neoboletus vividivelutinus would probably be your top hit in Genbank.

vivdivelutinus in Germany?

Not sure we have vividivelutinus in Germany.
