Found near Lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta)?

If so, could be R. occidentalis. But could also be one of the red-staining Rhizopogon. Microscopy?

Sorry to question your ID Darvin, but the specimens look to have reddish-stains on the rhizomorphs, which are uncommon (if indeed present) on R. occidentalis in my area. Might also be R. rubescens or R. subroseus. Much depends on either microscopy or nearest identified potential host tree. Also I find R. occidentalis is nearly pure sand dune or very sandy soils, which usually adhere somewhat to the sporocarps. I don’t see much of that here. Was there unusual amounts of rainfall recently which could have washed that away?
