The whitish context in the cap…

the bluing, and the pinkish cap color remind me of Boletus miniato-olivaceus. But the stipe seems too red and with too much ornamentation for this species.

B. miniato-pallescens is not reported as having the ribbed/(sub)reticulate stipe.

B. rubricitrinus is a similar SE NA species, but with stipe more yellow that red.

I don’t recall any particular odor

Section Fraterni I’d guess. The Easterners should field this one.
