Boletus zelleri confirmation

The red striated stalk and yellow pores narrow it to zelleri and rubripes, and the dark cap is distinctive for only zelleri.

Some folks report stomacheaches from ingestion. In my one experience with zelleri, a dry saute made it delectable, and I had no problems.

Never seen this one before -
