“North American Boletes” by Alan E. Bessette, William C. Roody, and Arleen R. Bessette (B-R-B) is perhaps the best book reference on fleshy pored mushrooms to date. The book is quite expensive, but is worth having especially if you are into boletes.
Thanks. Was wondering about the geographic distribution. I need a good Bolete reference, so can you clue me in? What is B-R-B?
According to B-R-B, B. mirabilis is known from the Pacific Northwest and North CA to Michigan. Instead, your images perfectly match the description of the similar B. projectellus which is common in the East. I have been collecting the latter in the NJ Pine Barrens this month (see observation 25529).
