Thanks Walt. Your comments are helpful. Any idea what it may be if not Boletus bicolor?

I added a cross section photo. I hope it’s useful to help pin down which mushroom this is :)

Staining? Flesh color? pictures of the pores… length of tubes?

It doesn’t look like B. bicolor

Hi Bobzimmer ~
I’m curious why you’re “doubtful” this specimen is a Boletus bicolor? Would you be kind enough to elaborate?
