Looks similar to NAB-13.

The “tannish brass color” of the pilei is a particularly good fit for these. BRB compares NAB-13 to Boletus fairchildianus which is described as having pores colored “red to dull red or orange red on a yellow ground color at first.” Yikes! That’s as confusing as a cap color description for a Russula species. But this collection actually sorta fits this description. The pores were basically yellow, but with an orangish sheen toward the center.

I just tossed these into the compost. In the cool damp weather they got moldy. Too many mushrooms, too little time, and only one dehydrator. Difficult to establish dehydration priorities, especially when there’s a few pounds of edulis lying there.

I think I recall previously seeing this type bolete in this same area.

these might be the same as Boletus sp. nov. (NAB-13). See page 354/363.
