as the name is used in North America is a complex of species. The one commonly found in Eastern North America has a sticky cap and occurs under Norway spruce, hemlock and white pine. Do a search of observations on this site called Boletus edulis. There is a lot of variety there.
Yours reminds me of: http://mushroomobserver.org/112092?q=1XqkR

why the name change?

I was wondering why the name change? There is no bluing, the pores are white, there is substantial white reticulation on the stipe at the apex. Everything led me to the conclusion that is edulis.

Thanks for looking!
