This looks like the Boletus…

that I have found in PA near pine, and which I believe is the same type that North American Boletes calls pinophilus. B. subcaerulescens also looks like this, with some bluing on the tubes or where the cap context meets the tubes.

Since pinophilus is a name applied to a European species (which actually looks different than the type seen here), looks like we may need a new name for this one.

Were there oaks in the area?
