The habit and habitat eliminate that ridiculously remote possibility that somehow dared to enter my mind… The combination of dark purplish brick red caps, the wavy and pale yellow cap margin, and the red densely squamulose stipe with a bit of concolorous reticulation doesn’t evoke anything specifically, but I agree that these bits and pieces look a bit familiar. I wish you had pictures of the stipes of the other fruitbodies.
If you are thinking about getting them sequenced, consider getting TEF-1 rather than nrITS. With that locus you should be able to get both a species barcode and an idea about a possible generic placement.

Mixed woods

These were in a mixed woods with oak and conifer. They were very meaty and the large cap was 6 inches across. They had a lot of purple tones in them. I think I saw this ID before a long time ago somewhere. I will start working on them. These were my favorite find that month,

These are tricky…

How big were these, and what was the habitat like? More specifically, to eliminate one remote possibility, did you happen to find these in a cedar bog by any chance? If not, I would think this might belong in Lanmaoa.

Something like Boletus pseudosensibilis?

Very shallow tubes, moderate bluing of flesh.
