It depends upon weather conditions and growth patterns and many other things.
B. subappendiculatus is a bolete from mountaineous regions growing with spruces and firs and has yellow context, yellow reticulation on stipe and is all in all quite yellow on stipe, pores and cap besides not known outside of Central Europe if I am right. I find it in the Alpes in altitudes between 500-1500 m a.s.l. …
Big boletes with white unchanging flesh almost certainly belong to sect. Edules or king boletes. Although under certain circumstances even Boletus edulis and allies can stain blue (especially when very wet or in late fall when temperatures are low).

tough boletus reticulatus, even when older, and these ones, with a softer flesh, almost spongy?
