Two different species here…

You have two different species here, and you should separate them into two different obs. The first two photos look to be Boletus eastwoodii, and third photo looks to be what we often call Boletus appendiculatus in California, although it doesn’t look like the Boletus appendiculatus from Europe, and some people often call Boletus regius in California, but there is some disagreement and range and season in use of that name. But that third one really needs more detail, better photos of cap, and cut in half, and make sure where it blues and how much when bruised to be sure of what to call it…
