I don’t know the species Pulveroboletus hemichryus.

But my understanding of the genus Pulveroboletus is that these types should have powdery/tomentose cap surface. The mushrooms seen here appear to be young specimens with glabrous cap surface (smooth).

Pore surface appears to show a yellowish tinge. Other than this, these remind me of genus Tylopilus.

Host tree:( I think)
