Boletus edulis complex

This mushroom is one of those eastern Boletus edulis types that no one has unraveled the identity of yet to my knowledge. I find this mushroom in CT in August under White Pine and Norway Spruce. The orange-red tomes of the cap and stipe are classic. Also the prominent white reticulation and the conifer association lead one on to just leave it as Boletus edulis. Boletus edulis var. aurantio-ruber (Dick & Snell) is close to this in visual appearance but they list different conifers as associates (Jack Pine, Red Pine).
