Boletus rhodosanguineus is a mushroom I don’t see around my home base in N CA and I see a description from Michael Kuo saying “Boletus rhodosanguineus, described by Both (1998), is mycorrhizal with red oaks, has a stocky stem, a pore surface that is red but features a contrasting yellow marginal zone,” and that looks like a good fit.

I did rub my finger across the pore surface after I photographed it and it soon turned dark blue where rubbed.
