The Boletus edulis complex have white pores which become yellow to brownish in age. In E. North America we have B. subcaerulescens which has a ruddy tan stipe. I am not familiar with var. grandedulis of the west except for the several obs. on this site. Most do not show the ruddy stipe. Here is Kuo’s perspective. http://www.mushroomexpert.com/...

B. edulis in the states has a white tiny pore surface, white reticulation on a brown background at apex, ‘possibly’ no color change of blue when damaged….n

This observation shows yellow pores, and is quite rosy at the apex.

I’m new to boletes, could someone clear this up?
