The B. variipes I find in CT

are coarsely reticulate usually but I have found them with a fine reticulation and I find them to be variable enough that they may be a species cluster with undescribed look-alikes. Several species in my area look similar, B. nobilis, B. nobilissimus, B. gertrudiae and old bleached out specimens of Xanthoconium seperans can each and all resemble variipes to a great degree.

Nice capture of the reticulation. Is it always so pronounced on “Boletus variipes”?

It was evident on a mushroom I found that you recently named Boletus variipes.
