With the lens I only have macro in my phone right now. Number four pic is of the base of the stipe. 5,6,7 are of the pileus. Looked like blue bruising! Gonna make a tea. Lol

the whole bolete?

the pictures are not really sufficient to give us an idea what your bolete looked like. There are more red boletes than the western American B. eastwoodiae (Boletus satanas is a European species), and the general shape of the mushroom, the stem (and its details – is there a net or are there dots), and cap colour and surface are all important.
Do you have pix of the whole specimen? and of the stem?

Not very tasty indeed.

Arora calls it poisonous, at least raw.
