that can be seen between tube layer and cap flesh and that should be reddish but sometimes it may be absent especially in such old specimens that stood in rain for too long. The color of the pores is orange to reddish. This bolete is edible as long as you cook it thoroughly and avoid drinking alcohol to the meal.
