Orange dots

Unicorn or not, in our advanced day and age it seems archaic to utilize such a questionable trait for formulation of species concept within a notoriously difficult to ID group of similar-looking organisms. Hortiboletus s.l. needs to be elucidated with cutting-edge, modern techniques, and we know what those are. :p

I’m not trying to argue, I’m trying to reconcile the fact that rubellus is a European species and the “orange dots” on Hortiboletus are like a unicorn. Very rare if they even exist. :)

Curious as to the ID vs. H. rubellus without seeing a cut section photo.
