Recognized by sight: A very interesting collection, I hope you saved it.
It resembles Boletus flavissimus, except for the fact that Murrill does not mention the red cap in young specimens; which could mean he didn’t see one, or this is something different. What gets called B. pseudosulphureus in the south is probably the same?
Used references: David Arora, Murrill,
