Boletus…

I guessed Boletus rubroflammeus, but I don’t see any dark red reticulation at the top of the stalk so I guess thats not it. Maybe its a tropical species, doesn’t seem to key out well anywhere.

Non-reticulate stipe?

It looks like this specimen doesn’t have a reticulate stipe and I thought one of the key features of B. frostii was a heavily reticulate stipe. See http://www.mushroomexpert.com/boletus_frostii.html.
