Keep photos together

It looks to me like all the photos are of the same collection, so important to keep them together. Photos clearly show reticulum. Just used Smith, Smith & Weber’s How to Know the Non-Gilled Mushrooms’ key, and it doesn’t key out. This is a species new at least to me.

None of these bruised purple. I do have some that turned as soon as I touched them. If I need to move the bottom specimen I will.

but something in the Boletus speciosus group but we need some more info to tell which one. More information like did any part bruise blue including the pore surface and was there a reticulum?

B. separans?

I can’t find anything that has reddish stipe (bruise?) plus pink to reddish-staining flesh. The top photo looks like B. bicolor, but that should bruise/stain blue, not red.

two different mushrooms?

looks to me like you posted two different mushrooms here. The bottom three boletes look familiar but can you tell if they(it) blued anywhere, either the context or the pore surface?
