Observation 60241: Boletus L.

I have been unable to find this specimen in any key, and I was unable to obtain a spore print. I suspect that the white tube mouths are in fact a secondary fungus growing on the Bolete. The tubes are yellow in cross section, but the tube mouths appear white. The flesh of the cap is a speckly red and does not stain blue; however, the flesh of the stipe does stain blue upon exposure. The surface of the stipe is NOT reticulated, as in most descriptions of B. luridus. I would appreciate some help in identifying this fungus.

Is difficult because of the Hypomyces infection.
