I think the first is Leccinum

I think the first is Leccinum versipelle and the rest are L scabrum. (unless they are all photos of the same one;) )

Two specimens

The top two are the same specimen and the ones lying on the ground are the other specimen. I have been having a little trouble with exposure which may explain the brighter 'look' of the 1st photo.

JanetThe cap of L versipelle

Janet
Reminder to self must look at all photos.
The cap of L versipelle can be from an obvious bright orange to a much more nondescript light brown but one of the ways to distinguish it is that the cap has small flaps of flesh overhanging the pores almost like the remnants of a veil.
