Dave and Gerhard regarding placing this bolete into genus Leccinum rather than Boletus. The proportions/stature of this mushroom are in agreement with this notion. I also agree that overall it does look somewhat similar to Boletus/Leccinum hortonii or subglabripes, and nothing else in B-R-B comes even remotely close. However, as I mentioned before, the pore surface color, the discoloration of the exposed flesh, and the texture of the pileus (lack of prononunced corrugation and pitting) doesn’t support either hortonii or subglabripes, both of which I am familar with.

There is no other choice

than either Leccinum including Leccinellum or Tylopilus and its closer relatives.
Maybe some Aureoboletus.
I think it is close to Boletus subglabripes/hortonii which also was in Leccinum.

Thanks Dave W

What about the above that also has a white context?

I don’t see any images on MO of hortonii with a yellow context.

Very interesting!

A very cool and unique looking bolete, Eva. A bright yellow stipe, without a hint of red or any other color, is not reticulated, yet not glabrous either — widely spaced longitudinal striations/ridges are clearly visible. The pore surface is buff-colored. The flesh stains pink when cut… I am still scratching my head.
