…interestingly Boletus roseipes, a look-alike, is more common in my area in the old growth Hemlock ravines of central CT.

The staining on the pores fits. The staining on the upper stipe is not mentioned by Bessette and Roody. They mention blue black stains near the base. The upper stipe in these photos is so covered with red reticulations that the underneath color is somewhat obscured. I see this species almost every year.

thanks Walt for input…

what I’m seeing that doesn’t fit in with my experience is blue/green staining on pores, almost no yellow on upper 1/3rd of stipe (I usually expect at least 1/4 of the upper stipe yellow) and what about the bluish stains on the stipe? I wish I could see the cap color….that would no doubt remove a lot of doubt…

Looks right

This doesn’t look like B. inedulis or B. rosipes that we find in the northeast. it looks much closer to the North American version of B. badius. I’m not familar with southern mushrooms though and I’d like to see the rest of the stipe.
