Used references: I initially ruled out B. smithii because most sources mention the reddish coloration at the apex of the stipe. However, Thiers, in his description of B. smithii (Mycologia 57: 530, 1965), mentions that the red and yellow color pattern of the stipe is sometimes reversed. Also, in a private communication, David Arora suggested that this mushroom may be B. smithii.

Recognized by sight: The gray, suede-leather cap, over hanging tissue on the margin, red blush to the stipe base. Reddening of pores happens in a lot of boletes, and is not a reliable identification feature.
