a yellow-pored Leccinum. L. subglabripes. Bright lemon-yellow pores and stem below brownish cap.

Why not Leccinum?

There is one section in this genus which includes yellow pored specimens like Leccinum crocipodium (=nigrescens) or Leccinum lepidum (they are European species) worldwide I think. I don’t regard them as Boletus.

good call Gerhard. I never looked at a larger image.

on close-up, the stipe ornamentation looks much more like scabers than reticulation.
