for a bolete of this kind in my experience (cannot think of anything but B. edulis and various Suillus species). Admittedly, my ID is rather a stretch even for this level of confidence. The pronounced longitudinal striations on the stipe, lack of a yellow apex and insufficient cracking of the brown (rather than olive) cap are not typical of this species…
