I see you posted individual mushrooms separately, but I didn’t cheat. If there was any cheating it only involves the general knowledge of your previous posts. I have photographic memory of many boletes, so I didn’t have to refresh my memory by searching your old posts. I should have known rubrictrinus was on the bottom left, but somehow I thought the whole column was the same collection. I am still having difficulty separating Alessioporus rubriflavus from Boletus luridellus, which makes me think that the latter could be transferred to Alessioporus. It would be nice to sequence luridellus. The bolete on upper right which I confused with rubricitrinus could be Lanmaoa roseocrispans, and I proposed that name with low confidence in your obs 285934.
Once again, thanks for posting. I can live vicariously through your obsies, learning the Deep South/Gulf Coast boletes. :-)

You’re good, Igor

You know my backyard better than I do. Alas :) You’re pretty much on the money.

The top right collection is something different. It looks like B. luridellus with a smooth stem and it blues much slower and more sporadically than does luridellus. The bottom left is B. rubricitrinus.

(And I was in particularly poor form with my iphone camera today. Between dodging suspicious neighbors while I picked mushrooms out of the yard and keeping my son from running into the street, it was tough going. I have no excuse here, however. I need to get a legitimate camera.)

Do you have a better shot of the mixed collection – it’s kinda grainy at higher magnification.
I think I can see the weird separans, the new-to-science Hemileccinum just above it in the middle column. To the left there is a large collection of either B. luridellus or A. rubrivlafus. To the right is probably B. rubricitrinus and But. floridanus below it. How did I do? :-)
