B. hortonii is not merely pitted/rugose, but tightly wrinkled, forming chambers and convolutions. The stipe ornamentation of your specimen consists of true scabers, while that of B. hortonii has more of a scruffy appearance and is yellow with occasional tinges of red. The pore surface of your bolete is not yellow. Finally, the stature of your specimen is very leccinumesque, while that of B. hortonii is more often boletish than not. Finally, check the macrochemical tests.

Thank you Daniel!
