Observation 207733: Boletus variipes group

Notes:
Growing in mixed woods.
Reticulation on stipe more obvious near base.
Cap 8.0 cm across.
Spores ~ 14.0-16.0 X 6.1-8.0 microns and smooth.
Taste was mild.
Xanthoconium(Boletus) separans is probably the right ID but the spores on these appear to be much wider…normally reported as being no more than 5.5 microns(?).
