I think this is B. subtomentosus. Note tapered stipe, also the cap is too light, not reddish, and it doesn’t appear to have ever been slimy. I made the same mistake before I found all three smallish bright yellow-pored local boletes (the other being B. citriniporus). Once you see them all, the differences are more apparent. B. subtomentosus is certainly the most common.
