Found in mixed hardwood/conifer forest. Immediately staining blue on the pileus, spore surface, and stem. Cap color varies from light to darker pinkish red with spore color a similar pinkish shade, with light yellow undertones. Best guess is Boletus roseopurpureus.

Thanks for the specifics. That’s very helpful. Mark
for several reasons: 1st this mushroom has or had red/orange pores (roseopurpureus has yellow pores). 2nd roseopurpureus has thick distinct reticulation this mushroom has none or faint. I’d lean toward something in the Boletus lridiformis group with this one.
