Mixed up in Europe too

There are european boletes that sometimes are misinterpreted as satanas too, particularly B. rhodoxanthus, which looks even more like your eastwoodiae (pinkish hues on the cap that satanas doesn’t have), so the mix-up is not hard to understand.

Thanks for the post

Perfect timing I had just listed our local variety of " Boletus satanas " But now i can see the big difference for our being changed to eastwoodiae. Thanks to those who corrected me too.
