expecting to get anything close to closure on this ID… not much info. But the pics are okay, so who knows?… Maybe somebody will recognize.

Thanks for the input, Igor.

This mushroom has the stature reminiscent that of some Leccinums (thin curvy stipe), but color of the pore mouths and lack of scabers rule out this notion. The other possibility, based on the stature and pinkish pores, is Austroboletus gracilis var. flavipes, which would not pass the scrutiny either. Thus, Tylopilus sp. is the only reasonable start, but I could not find anything looking like this in the big bolete book, and I am sure you carefully combed through it, too. Look at the pore shapes and uneven surface, and pileipelial shaggy texture — they look rather unusual for your typical Tylopilus in eastern PA/NJ area.
