The pores are definitely the right color and intensity for Aureoboletus, and it’s hard to argue with a viscid stipe, but they just looked weird to me.

I never would have thought the two would be confuseable, but apparently the dilemma has existed before:

Viscid stipe

and bright greenish yellow pores led me to this ID.

the caps on these are very pale, the stipes are very short, and the cap texture doesn’t look like it was ever viscid… are you sure these were Aureoboletus?

I know it would still be rather pale, but they struck me as B. innixus
