Actually, the names “fraternus” and/or “campestris” are also names of Boletus species that may apply here. And, Georgia may have some other types that I don’t know. There seems to be substantial variation in Boletus species distribution from north to south in eastern NA.

Anther thing about bicolor… the tube layer is very shallow in relation to the rest of the cap context.

Thank you for your input

I have a long way to go on my bolete IDs so this is very helpful

I doubt these small boletes…

are B. bicolor. The pore surface looks wrong for these types. Small specimens of bicolor are almost inevitably immature, with pores extremely small at this stage.
