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 think both you and Geoff have collected it before. Maybe something like this:
https://mushroomobserver.org/247370
https://mushroomobserver.org/251383

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.
Thanks, Dario!
