Boletus rawlingsii. This is the closest I can come without actually looking at McNabb’s type from New Zealand. I have seen this bolete in the north and south of Queensland. I have provisionally called it ‘insecticidal’ in the past,because it never seems to get buggy.

Stipe & reticulation

Dave, Not that I noticed. There was some peeling effect on the stipe but apart from this it was mainly smooth.

I’m wondering about the surface of the stipe… any evidence of a reticulation? The bright yellow pores and bright yellow stipe bring Retiboletus ornatipes to my mind. In NA this species always has a distinctly reticulate stipe.
