There was no blue bruising. I did notice some orange-reddish discoloration on the pore surface, although I could not recreate it by bruising the specimen. I think these are all one species, they were found grouped together under hemlock and are all reticulated. The stipes had a subterranean pointed foot, made of a white mycelial mass. The cap color appears to vary greatly from a light tan to a dark reddish brown. I have found this species before in the same location.

Mixed collection?

Some of these look more like the porcini type, with lighter-colored stipes. Mixed collection or not, there are still Boletus sensu stricto in the sense of Dentinger et al. (2010).
