There are Ponderosa in the general vicinity. This particular specimen was in an open area, at least 30 ft from any tree.

I was just wondering if your observation was found in Ponderosa Pine forest? If so it might be a Suillus but it sure looks like reticulation on the stipe.

but I’d like to see more stipe before committing myself.

I did not collect this mushroom because harvesting is not allowed in this area.
Is this Boletus edulis?
