Boletus satanas is a good European species, but the name has been commonly misapplied in North America, especially in California. Many good pictures of the true B. satanas are available on the web. Fungi of Switzerland Vol 3 also has good image and a description of the species. For material found in California, Boletus eastwoodiae is a better name. A more complete discussion of the issue is available on that page.
