That’s an interesting one! The staining of the flesh does suggest Caloboletus, but the cap color is certainly unusual for the genus. Did it taste bitter?
I identified your 247370 as Caloboletus based on the BLASTn results of its LSU sequence, but now I am not so certain my interpretation of the data was correct. It could have been a case of long branch attraction — a known phylogenetic phenomenon that makes unrelated things sit on adjacent branches in a tree. A follow up with TEF-1 makes sense at this point.
Oh, and I would like a sample of your 377364 if you dried it.
