I found a website,

Bolete Filter…. compared Bolete to new Caloboletus… your propsed name looks right…
: )
Found this interesting Science Notes: DNA testing moved this mushroom from Boletus to a newly erected genus called “Caloboletus”. The species name was revised at the same time for unknown but probably sound reasons….so, you were correct..yet again

I proposed a name and I believe it to be correct.
Caloboletus conifericola used to be called Boletus coniferarum and can grow to be gigantic.
There are plenty of descriptions available to look at.
You are very welcome.

Rich, thanks

Boletaceae is a family within the order Boletales, which includes many different genera including Boletus. The order Boletales has many different families under it. “Bolete” is just a generic term or “common name” that often refers to most fungi in this family or order, which have a pore surface.

This bolete has brown cap, not red like the ones in boletecae…and these had reticulum, webbing like a king at the stipe where it meets the cap, but it stained blue…..confused here?? Bc boletecae do not have the reticulum from what i read???
