I would have called this fungus Boletus mollis – “Custard Bolete” – but the name is not recognised on this site, unfortunately.

Would it help if I tried to dig up another photo or two of this particular specimen? Not sure if I’ve made it clear, but the two posted images of this mystery bolete are of the one specimen…
specimen and unidentifiable from the image. It very much resembles the Australian T. balloui, but my estimate on that determination is far from accurate based on that one image. It most certainly is not Fistulinella mollis or any other taxon in Fistulinella. Members of this latter genus are quite squishy with the consistency of a semi-warm marshmallow (at least those in Australia). thanks for the image.
Fistulinella mollis, but I severely doubt this ID. I think this to be either Rubinoboletus or Tylopilus, maybe something close to Rubinoboletus caespitosus.
