UI ?bolete on well rotted beech stump Oct 2018

Please try to include photos to show all parts of the fungus, eg top, stem, and gills.
Note any smells, and associated trees or plants (eg oak, birch). A spore print can be very useful.

Seen Oct 2018. Felt sure I cd identify this later but it defeated me! No spore print taken; they were about 5 feet up the stump. Grateful for any help.

There are a group of very similar species one of which is Xerocomus (or Xerocomellus) cisalpinus. I wouldn't say it was this, as species determination in this genus is tricky.
