And it is very appreciated to deal with all aspects especially in boletes.
But here you can trust her – it is Boletus erythropus ;=)

one thing is your personal conviction about the classification of some specimen, another is to illustrate the features of the specimen that can help other people to arrive to their own classification. As we know the result is often different, depending on the observer. So, for instance, regarding boletus (sensu lato) a simple photo doesn’t say much about the species unless you are an expert and there are not so many among us.

I’m pretty sure

they are B. erythropus, because I found many in the same place and these ones were cooked without further photos, but I have an obs. that illustrates all the features. I just didn’t vote “I’d call it that” because I can’t prove with photos.

In the future,

try to make a longitudinal cut to exposed the flesh to air and observe the changes in the colorations of the various parts. This can give many informations and particularly to distinguish between look-alikes.
