Any thoughts on type? They appear to be boletes with a red pored surface, almost velvety cap and stains blue.

Saw these pop up in the backyard, probably growing on decaying roots of an old tree. They grow in clusters. Any idea on Genus?

Included on Brian's list is "Attributing extreme events to climate change, especially heat, is easier than ever." Some examples of my +Stanford University research group's work on event attribution in 2015 can be found here:
