Bothia castanella

The cap color is does not match Bothia castanella from the description from Mycologia. The flesh of Bothia castenella is described as being pallid and unchanging in http://www.mycologia.org/cgi/content/full/99/2/310 .
The pores of the mushroom I’m calling Boletus tenax stain cinnamon red this can be seen on the smaller of the two mushrooms, this matches the description in North American Boletes. The flesh is also staining red.

I’m confused by this image, http://mushroomobserver.org/image/show_image/55340?obs=24880&q=1Y8m the flesh is staining red, the flesh is unchanging in Bothia castanella.

was Suillus and Boletinus. The reticulations do not fit.

I looked at the Wiki, where can I find more info for Bothia. The reticulation was more pronounced when it was fresh, it was handled by a lot of people.

resemble Bothia castanellus. I don’t think this is tenax.
