Oak or Hemlock?

Visually this mushroom has the stature aspect of a young Austroboletus gracilis (before the pores turn pink) particularly the long, curved gradually tapering stipe and depressed tubes. But the best question to ask is what tree is it growing with. Oak-Beech or Hemlock? A. gracilis favors Hemlock. The chestnut bolete favors Oak/Beech.
