Why not campestris?

Too big and meaty; flesh is white, not yellow; cap is supposed to be finely cracked (rimose) toward the margin.

Why is this not Hortiboletus campestris?

The only thing that seems anomalous about it is that it’s larger than most of the specimens that I’ve found and that the blue staining isn’t QUITE as pronounced as it would usually be. It was also kind of an old specimen. Otherwise the scattered growth, somewhat irregular pores, and cracked cap all seem like a good match.
