That is reassuring. My first thought when I found it was that it suggested but was not Boletus chrysenteron which I have found at that location in previous summers; B-R-B mentions the potential confusion with B. chrysenteron in their Comment p 86. For the moment, I am considering the photo in Roody to be atypical.

Looks like something…
