I would not call this porcini, Angela.

Porcini = Boletus edulis. This has something white growing on the cap. There is a black or dark brown stain just under the hymenium (pores) which is not porcini-like. There is no reticulation on the stipe which porcini should have.

That said, I don’t really know what to call this obs.
