Recognized by sight: Much too pale cap to be B. leucomelaena. It looks exactly like our Boletopsis grisea, that is found mainly in older pine forests, often with species like Tricholoma focale & matsutake, Sarcodon squamosus & scabrosus, and some large, yellow Ramaria species. You seem to have some of those in that area – that is why I beleive this actually is B. grisea and not something else..
