Looks like what I’d call subcaerulescens.

Some collections I have made show no blue stain at all. I had previously called these non-stainers “Boletus pinophilus”. In my experience, the best place to look for the bluing is on the cap context where the tubes attach. Remove some of the tubes and examine the inner context surface.
