If there was a (generally very slight) bluing of the pores, or the flesh directly above the tubes, then B. subcaerulescens would be my guess. I found that one last year (late June) and will make a post soon. Basically, my take on B. pinophilus is that it is very similar to B. subcaerulescans, only with no bluing at all. Other possibilities for this one would seem to be B. nobilis or B. variipes…. Can’t completely rule out edulis either. This is where the chemical applications sometimes help to straighten things out in the confusing world of Boletus.

Last summer (late summer, if I recall) here in NE PA I found some edulis type of Boletus that I tentatively IDed as B. pinophilus. The stems were deeply reticulate, as appears to be the case with this one. I’ll look around at home for some photos & maybe post later.
